#photography Dawn - Ruud van Empel 2008 Dutch artist Ruud van Empel has taken digital manipulation of photography to a new level. ''His colourful images are synthesized from a myriad of elements, manipulating their fragments and traces rather like an artist uses paint. With digital software he creates complex and exotic images, sometimes spending months working on the sydthesis of a particular photo-derived scenario. Van Empel does not pretend to represent the truth or convey reality, but so seamless is his work that the eye is unwittingly coaxed into believing in the reality of a total fantasy world. Beginning his career in theatre before moving on to graphic design and filmmaling, van Empel entered the world of photography in the early 1990s at the commercial end of the spectrum. Initially working in black and white, creating photo-collages od scenes from the natural world, he quickly graduated to colour photography and soon the enhanced oppotunities offered by digital manipulation presented him with a whole new palette of possebilities. Since the mid-1990s, he has devoted all his time to art photography. When van Empel exhibited his work at a gallery in the Netherlands, he showed a series of images depicting blonde, blue eyed girls and was both shocked and dismayed when he was labelled a racist and a Nazi for displaying images solely of white girls. This prompted his most distinctive series of images. In a riposte to his critics, he created Moon, World, Venus, depicting the innocence of childhood through a series of images mostly od black children surrounded by lush tropical vegetation are as contrived as the famous jungle paintings of Henri Rousseau, who derived his images from plants sketched in the Tropical House of the Jardin des Plantes, Paris. His work methodes are complex but, typically, van Empel will photograph four or five agency models in his studio, and then take a series of detailed shots of leaves, flowers, plants and insects. After collecting hundered of images, he carefully selects those images that can best achieve the required effect. These artificial paradise of van Empel’s appeal, of cource, to our romantic sentiments and are a hair’s breadth from outright kitsch, executed with such skill and aesthetic sensibility that the visual impact eclipses the satirical message. It is this threshold between the original and rhetorical that van Empel adroitly navigates in the creation of his ultimately seductive images.'' Ron Exley

You see things. You keep quiet about them. And you understand — but does it float

It’s not necessary to know whether I am joking or whether I am serious, just as it is not necessary for me to know it myself — but does it float

Who Loves the Sun — but does it float

I dream with open eyes, and others see my dreams — but does it float

Man is only man at the surface. Remove his skin, dissect, and immediately you come to machinery — but does it float

On the run to the outside of everything — but does it float
