Rusty Tutus and Bloody Feet - 2014 - by Gregor Rohrig

"Gregor has re-visioned classical paintings and modern art, re-introducing these into the 21st century, igniting viewers imaginations all over. The South African-based artist skilfully marries the subjects of famous fine-art paintings with his urban and landscape photography.


As regards to this body of work entitled: "EXPOSE + APPROPRIATE =ART !"...


Röhrig's images [the "EXPOSE" of the exhibit] could stand alone, worthy of their intrinsic beauty, originality, sensitivity and perfection. His choice of art ["APPROPRIATE"] is quirky, spontaneous and it is essentially and instantly recognizable. The homogenous and "osmotic" union of the two have raised the awareness of "Appropriation Art", as defined below:

APPROPRIATION

1. [MASS NOUN] The action of appropriating something:
1.1The deliberate reworking of images and styles from earlier, well-known works of art:
[the hallmark of postmodernism has turned out to be appropriation]

The final, original artwork appears deceptively effortless, but only a fine and keen knowledge of visual and digital media allows this seamless perfection."

"Theoretically it’s postmodern, combining elements of photography, digital manipulation and fine art. Culturally it’s uncomfortable, grinding the shadowy edges of religiosity with socio-psychological observances. Artistically it’s brilliant." - Gareth Pretorius - Journalist
