Ellen Schippers foggy portraits of women
By Branko Collin (27 October 2014)
I went to check out a small art fair today that I was told had photos by Danielle van Zadelhoff (not the exhibition I wrote about last week, but also in Amsterdam).
Zadelhoffs photos weren’t there, but instead I saw photographs by Ellen Schippers, Bas Bogaerts, Gabriele Vierte and Janet de Graaf. I may show you works by the latter three later, but today I recommend you check out the works of Ellen Schippers .
Schippers makes photographic portraits that have a painting-like quality because everything is blurry without being out of focus. I don’t know how she creates this look, but if I had to guess I would say she positions her subjects behind fogged up screens. The work shown here is called Snow White. I am not sure if this a photo or a still of one of her videos, but does it matter?
Ellen Schippers is a multi-disciplinary artist from Amsterdam who started out as a performer in art galleries and theatres.
