Artist

Jörg Bräuer (1966) is a German-born photographer and painter. He studied at the school of Photography and Printing in Munich, and holds a Fine Arts degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology – F.I.T. New York University.

He has lived and worked in Munich, London, New York, Lisbon and Barcelona. He resides now in Brussels, in the arts district of “the Sablon” and works from his atelier in South West France.

Jörg Bräuer pursues his poetic and aesthetic quest, focusing on landscape, architecture, and still life with a pictural quality that exposes finer details with great depth and contrast, revealing the restrained beauty that inhabits the unknown and magical world around us. This approach is illustrated by his series, in “The Edge of Silence”, the chromatic variety and graphic purity of the impressive falaises in Normandy border on abstraction. With “Conversations in Silence”, Jörg Bräuer renders his subtle and understated dialogue with the gardens, the trees and the sculptures of the Château Vaux-le-Vicomte, during a long residency.

His series “Asperity” explores the rough, unrefined landscapes of Iceland and the connection to nature’s most essential elements: minerals, water, ice, fire, light and wood. Here, the artist is employing layers of ink, emulsion and oil on the cotton paper, wood mounted photographs, he evokes the true reliefs and asperities found in nature, as revealed with his monumental piece “Silent Path n°I”.
