Thomas Riess – Dissolve I

Unique Collage from the Series “Flashback into the future”

Dissolve I, 2021
Collage on paper
14,5 x 10,5 cm (Image size)


A reminiscence of Thomas Riess’ past work that will have an impact on the future. Early images of Riess’ work are serially reinterpreted, changed and sometimes playfully placed into a new context. This creates a link to earlier works and thematizes the important factors in the artistic work process such as time, transformation and reflection. The title is based on Louise Bourgeois’ work “I Had a Flashback of Something that Never Existed”.
