New Works by Berlin Photographer Stefan Heyne at Kaune, Sudendorf Gallery
Stefan Heyne, ‘0456‘, 2010, 120 x 180 cm, Photography on Alu Dibond, Edition of 5 + 2 A.P.

COLOGNE.- With their current exhibition 'For Me / For You' Kaune, Sudendorf Gallery presents new works by Berlin fine art photographer Stefan Heyne. Heyne was born in 1965 in Brandenburg/Havel and studied scenography at the art school Berlin from 1987 to 1993. He was a student at the master class of Prof. Volker Pfüller. Over the past years his photographs were shown in numerous exhibitions in Germany. So far he has published two books that give an insight in his work.

Starting out as a stage designer, photography was only a medium to document his work at the theater, but soon evolved into an independend means of expression. Ambitious to overcome deficiencies of traditional photography, the artist finds his own visual language. He breakes with prevailing conventions and ironically reflects on the alleged role of photography which claims acurate representation.

Looking at his pictures reminds you of the situation of awakening, when reality slowly takes shape and everything seems a little out of focus. One wants to rub his eyes, to wipe off the remains of dreams that veil his gaze. But the cognition hoped for fails to appear. Haiziness remains persistent.

Heyne's pictures are no easy entertainment. We are spellbound by the mystical aura of his pictures, enchanting and unnerving at the same time. This conflict of curiosity and anxiety entices the beholder to abandon his usual way of perception, hoping to remove the blurry haze and discover the message behind it.

Heyne's photography mirrors his way of working: A process that leaves behind space, time, and all things material. A process that creates a composition of light and shapes to convey a powerful visual message. This message is the essence of the artist's long evolutionary journey.

The radical consistency represented in Heyne's work makes him a master of abstraction and is a testament to the quality of his work. Heyne leaves his recent work untitled, a next step in his progression that - especially in the presence of his art - appears intuitive and logical. He shows us the ambiguous nature of reality and asks some hard questions that will add imagination to your perception.
