ARTIST OF THE MONTH
About The Art
In his photographic work, Steve Braun is using a pictorial symbol language borrowed from ethnographic, ideological or religious contexts. Historically charged set pieces of cultural history become props of his dramatically staged still lifes. In this case, the sphere of action for the symbolic manifestation of the entanglement of meaning and the form in which the recurring image element gives rise to a new attribution is resolved.
