Wanrooij Gallery in Amsterdam presents 'Evolution' by Christian Voigt
Christian Voigt, Euoplocephalus.


AMSTERDAM.- Wanrooij Gallery in Amsterdam presents from 6 June until 24 August 2019 an exhibition of German photographer Christian Voigt. For his new series Evolution the fine art photographer has portrayed prehistoric skeletons against a black backdrop. Huge dinosaurs, three-dimensional, almost alive. Fantasy fiction becomes reality. The gallery shows an intriguing selection of large-format photographs.

Christian Voigt has received international recognition for his monumental, hyper-realistic landscape and architectural photography, in particular interiors of museums and libraries. His life motive is the search for beauty, underpinned by perfectionism. With Evolution, the artist has radically expanded both his visual vocabulary and his portfolio of photographic techniques. The idea for the new series came to him in 2017 when he was photographing the immense skeleton of a blue whale hanging in the Natural History Museum in London.

The artist wants his Evolution series to be regarded more as objects than as images, captured under almost laboratory-like conditions. The authentic photographs of dinosaurs have been taken with large-format analogue cameras in natural history museums in Berlin, Denkendorf, Frankfurt am Main and London. Specially conceived frames are integral parts of the very detailed pictures of delicate skeletons, with hyper-ideal lighting and uncannily crisp contours of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus and Triceratops Duo.

Christian Voigt (Munich, 1961) lives in Hamburg and the south of France. He was born into a family of publishers and photographers. Voigt is one of Germany’s most successful photographic artists. He subsequently honed his technique, refined his visual language and travelled extensively. The iconic, autonomous work of the artist has been presented at more than 100 exhibitions in mainly Europe and the USA. His panoramic, strictly limited edition pictures are in demand amongst private collectors worldwide.

Wanrooij Gallery in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, is internationally renowned for its innovative, challenging and inspiring art with character. The gallery provides a prominent stage for emerging and acclaimed artists and has a key focus on new media art. Over the years the gallery has developed a total art experience. In that perspective, the gallery constantly seeks new challenges by pushing boundaries of the established art world. Wanrooij Gallery participates in major art fairs worldwide.
