This exhibition will present groundbreaking artworks wedding mobile phone photography to painting. Kroll created the world’s first integration of these two mediums. The “Imirage” hybrid works are a visual drama, a subtle and deceptive interaction of painted space and digital space; a fusion of monoscopic space from the eye of the camera and stereoscopic space from the eye of the painter. The power of painting imbues the digital medium with a deeper more profound resonance.
Jeffrey Kroll is the first painter to be supported by Samsung. It is his intention to humanise the digital format and explore its visual possibilities. In a world glutted with digital reproduction Kroll reintroduces the hierarchical force of painting and expresses the mysterious aura of what has always been true in great art, a revelation of form and poetic drama.
