Salvaged Proxies of the Really Real

Angelised Man    182 x 40cm

Dröges work can be seen to represent the overwhelming daily impressions, images and information which constantly flood our senses. By exploring the lines between the Internet, the digital screen, the art of photography, and by using composite digital collages and techniques, he creates an unstable visual which urges thought and personal interpretation. Perhaps I will never know exactly what it is that I’m looking at – a thought which I find pleases me. The strength of Dröges work is found in the intangible, in that which provokes thought and which continues to surprise the spectator.  Susanne Fessé, konsthistoriker

Having grown up in the Netherlands and with a Master degree in visual art and design from Hogeschool voor de Kunsten,  Armin Dröge is an experienced visual artist and film maker. His work has been seen at various scenes and museums in Europe and is part of the collection of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam amongst others. Today Dröges Art practice is based in Stockholm, from where he produces photographic work with large format digital cameras and traditional paint- and print techniques.

‘’My task is to look for clarity, I want to show that new and beautiful things can be created out of our sensory overloaded environment. My desire is to make you, the audience, reflect on the ordinary habit of looking at everyday images, to make your own connections, form your own view and be truly opinionated.’’
