Philipp Groth "Hide Your Face" & "Athari" presented by stylistberlin
The artist Philipp Groth was selected to show his works at the first exhibition curated by stylistberlin at Stattbad. He will be exhibiting works from his 'Athari' and 'Hide Your Face' series.
The inspiration for "Athari" came from the idea of merging photography and painting together to create a surreal blend. The background was created solely with pen and ink and the foreground out of photographic material. Looked at closely Athari is more dream than reality.
The selection "Hide Your Face" are Groth's latest works. By alienating the classical concept of a portrait in a surrealistic way, the artist interprets the growing wish of hiding in namelessness. Groth questions if a hidden face is to equate with total anonymity.
The works are collages of photos blended with paint. While the paint illustrates the shapes of individuals, the photographs reflect their internal world.
