Olaf Breuning – Artist Statement


Interested in the intersection between the familiar and the absurd, Olaf Breuning explores mystic imagery to relay truths amidst humanity. Through mediums such as photography, installation, sculpture, film and drawing, Breuning uses repetition, color and pattern to emphasize conceptions within his artwork. Inanimate objects are personified though simple gestures while the human figure stands in as symbolic representation. By way of these gestures and symbols, a distinct recurring language is presented in Olaf Breuning’s work. With this established vocabulary, Breuning produces narratives that convey humor, honesty and uncertainty of the world that surrounds us. The autonomous works present an imagination that exists in an unidealized yet sensitive society that Breuning constructs.

this is vague, what's the content of the work?  his work does not explore mystic imagery, and amidst humanity needs editing...
