Thomas Kellner FarbWelt 135-36

Excellent (Awarded) Art
In 2009 the German artist Thomas Kellner received the Fineart award by the
county government of Düren. “Farbwelt 135-36” was published in conjunction
with the award and its title is a tribute to a famous brand in photography.
This illustrated monograph gathers the most important works of his series
“Tango Metropolis” and “Dancing Walls”.
The images provide an insight into the artist’s work from 1997-2009 where he
developed his unique style of deconstruction. Prof. Dr. Günter Zehnder, art
historian and former director of the Rheinisches Landesmuseum in Bonn, wrote
an introduction worth reading from an art-historical point of view which
accompanies this illustrated book.
„What belongs here to Thomas Kellner’s unique technique and composition
style at the same time reminds us of the picture flood that we are all
subjected to around the clock, practically without any breaks. Almost 98% of
them are created with a photographic camera along with all of the technology
that follows - up to the quick and clumsy cell phone image. We, that is to
say every generation is surrounded by a colorful picture world that leads us
to perceive many things in passing, ostensibly and superficially, thereby
leading us to often see everything and yet nothing. The catchy picture which
therefore does not require any analysis and thought is often the most
popular.”
