About

Persephone VII by Erik Pawassar 24 x 19 inches (61 x 48cm) edition of 25 signed 40 x 31 inches (102 x 79cm) edition of 25 signed 62 x 48 inches (157 x 122cm) edition of 7 signed archival fine art pigment print signed & numbered by artist on label custom/larger sizes are available on request _____________________________ Erik Pawassar's work focuses on the beauty of the disregarded or mundane object. The subjects for his striking and captivating visuals are typically set in the most ordinary environments, drawing the viewer into a charged but serene experience based on composition, palette and formal lines. Saturated in color, the nominal subjects gather a haunting and mesmerizing quality, creating a poignant pretext for the making of a formal color photograph. Decisively capturing the traces left by humanity, Pawassar's images are filled with a sense of universal nostalgia and pay homage to the passage of time and the extinguished moment, referencing documentary and street photographers like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Sebastian Salgado, Raghubir Singh and Edward Burtynsky as early influences. Pawassar's profession as a highly sought­-after photo re­toucher informs his images with a heightened sensitivity to color and a discerning sense of detail - but while his daily work revolves around impeccably retouched compositions and flawless digital refineries, Pawassar's artwork is created exclusively in-camera, Erik Pawassar was born in Bielefeld, Germany in 1968. He currently lives and works in San Francisco. ________________________________ Artist statement about the Persephone series: "The series PERSEPHONE is a documentation of the traces of a person’s existence. It was photographed in my neighbor's apartment in San Francisco, an elderly Greek immigrant named Persephone, in the home she had inhabited for more than 35 years, captured on the day she moved to a retirement home, leaving behind traces of her life that are faint yet lurid. Life seems to have permeated and superseded the walls, creating a structure of its own with markings like fingerprints that hint at the presence of the life once within them. They will soon disappear and be lost. I hope to have preserved this unique state as a memory of Persephone’s existence." ________________________________ Edition EKTAlux offers an evolving curated selection of collectable large-scale photography in strictly limited editions, while working closely with each artist to guarantee state-of-the-art museum level print and framing quality. Custom / larger print sizes available on request Images can be printed with white border upon request [ 2" L prints & 4" XL prints ]
