Angelus
2010
Piezo print on paper
49.5 x 39.5 cm

Selg works in unusual self-isolation from his times quite literally: the artist has retreated into the woods in order to work, donning the role of the traditional craftsman and exploring the idea of self-sufficiency that accompanies it. At the same time, Selg takes advantage of the latest computer technology to produce multi-layered images like the dreamlike Vorahnung (Premonition) and the colour-saturated Angelus (both 2010), recalling the imagery and symbolism of earlier visual traditions of the German Romantics and Expressionists.
