Contact Collectionair for details about the artwork:

In this series, Markus Amm used the old technique of the photogram, a cameraless process first used by Man Ray and Moholy Nagy. Objects are placed on a photosensitive surface and briefly exposed to light to create an "x-ray" type image, an inverted shadow outline of a certain form. Amm's geometrical compositions "drawn with light" are also reminiscent of abstract and cubist paintings.

MARKUS AMM

The broad practice of Markus Amm (Stuttgart, Germany, 1969) comprises photograms, collages, and small and large format oil paintings. His project Untitled engages with modernist conceptions of space and technology via photogram capturing. He shows his influence from cubism and the abstract arts, though his work is unmistakably, mechanically avant garde. Amm's work is featured in the Deutsche Bank Collection, Kunstmuseum in Stuttgart, and he has had solo exhibitions at Herald Street, London (2012); David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles (2011); Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, Stuttgart (2010).
