ABOUT THE WORK
In the past five years, Paul Bogaers’ work has developed from two-dimensional studies to the three-dimensional domain of assemblage, sculpture and installation, where photography plays a vital role. Bogaers also uses papier mâché – a material not often embraced by fine artists.
Association and suggestion have been important aspects of Bogaers’ visual language from the outset. With his combinations of photographs, often using ‘objets trouvés’ such as amateur photographs, pages torn from books and other visual material, he invites the viewer to discover surprising links. Bogaers has never contented himself with the power of photography to reproduce exact representations of the visible world around us. In contrast, he’s constantly searching for ways to capture the internal world in images. Bogaers combines various media in an attempt to push the absolute limits of photography as an artistic medium.
