Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

100 x 100 cm, ready to hang. Limited edition of 10.
Hahnemühle Photo Rag Bright White fine-art paper, mounted on 3mm aluminium (dibond).

My abstract digital photo-art is inspired by contemporary abstract painting. I am fascinated by the emotive power of shape and colour.
I use my camera to capture textures and structures, either from the world around me, or from acrylic paintings which I make specifically for this purpose. These are the raw ingredients that I use to compose my work in the digital realm.
Recurring stylistic elements in my work are the use of an altered, minimal colour palette and an interplay of order and chaos, of spontaneity and restraint.
My work is purely driven by emotion: the images that I create carry no story or message. I only intend to create atmosphere and to convey the feelings and emotions that I felt at the time of making them to the viewer.

I was recently selected for New Dutch Photography Talent and FRESH EYES by GUP magazine.

"FRESH EYES celebrates the best photography talent in Europe. It is a book presenting the 100 greatest emerging photographers the continent has to offer. The first edition, FRESH EYES 2019, was launched in June 2019."

From a limited edition of 10 (at this print size).

Artist Profile

Born: 1980

Hometown: The Hague

Based in: Wateringen

In his abstract digital photo-art, self-taught visual artist Joris Graaf (The Hague, 1980) seeks to create tension by forming a synthesis of opposites: noise and melody, growth and decay. His work is inspired by contemporary abstract painting. He is fascinated by the emotive power of shape and colour.
Joris uses his camera as an instrument to capture textures and structures, either from the world around him, or from assemblages of paint and other materials which he makes specifically for this purpose. These are the raw ingredients that he uses to compose his work in the digital realm.

Recurring stylistic elements are the use of an altered, minimal colour palette and an interplay of order and chaos, of spontaneity and restraint.

Purely driven by emotion, his work is not intended to convey any messages or stories. With his images, he intends to create atmosphere and to convey the feelings and emotions that he felt at the time of making them to the viewer.

Joris was recently selected for New Dutch Photography Talent 2019 and FRESH EYES by GUP magazine.

"FRESH EYES celebrates the best photography talent in Europe. It is a book presenting the 100 greatest emerging photographers the continent has to offer. The first edition, FRESH EYES 2019, was launched in June 2019."
