Wolfgang Ellenrieder


Wolfgang Ellenrieder (born in 1959 in Munich) works with camouflage and deception. He leads the viewer astray and makes use of a great number of sources like stock photography archives, the Internet, brochures on model-making, and, often, his own photographs, drawings and watercolours, all giving glimpses of our reality. Nevertheless, this reality is interwoven to create something completely new in a game of interlinked media; through its calculated closeness to what we have experienced and already seen, it attempts to shake up the apparent security of our observation of images. Furthermore, his paintings and photographs exemplify an age defined by the power of the image. The art of seduction of the artist conceals the mechanisms and structures of our media-based existence, and questions – albeit in an ironic undertone – the use of images in politics, society and culture.
