Reduced to the max: Stefan Heyne and NewGermanAbstraction
The photographs of Stefan Heyne are emphatically nonrepresentational. The artist creates abstract photographs that are honed to perfection by paring his imagery to a blurred play of light and shadows with no indication of form. In his most recent series of works Heyne photographs the cloudless sky from the window of an airplane. The color spectra of pure light that are revealed in these images seem blurry and out of focus, but they are not. Heyne achieves the most radical degree of abstraction in his work to date. In his photographs the viewer is confronted with an endless depth of space and eternity.
