Amaury Wenger

Amaury Wenger studied architecture in Paris and Berlin. The confrontation with the art of building and its historical, social and scientific-technical preconditions encouraged him to further develop his artistic research. Wenger is interested in the cognitive potential of visual art as a means of creating immediate access to complex, intuitively elusive contexts. His award-winning photographic works, which have been exhibited throughout Europe, question the shifting relationship between past and present in dealing with new and historic architecture as spaces created by and for people. Predominantly abstract, his work is intended to remain open and accessible. Often the simplest geometric shapes are used to provide the eye with an island of tranquillity to focus on the essential.
