biography infocusgalerie burkhard arnold

Herbert Döring-Spengler (prices: 300 € - 5000 €)
born 1944 in Cologne

For many years and through his work, the photo artist Döring-Spengler has dealt with the topic of the human being and its interaction with the world and society. In his latest work, photography is an artistic tool which is constantly altered through overlapping and editing with different techniques in order to create artistic-picturesque statements. These latest developments are implemented in the so-called Diazetten. This technique creates collages of pictures through overlapping, which also reflect on certain situations and historic-political events. Those Diazetten are confronted by the artists well-known Polaroid-works, in which Döring-Spengler alters the uniqueness of both the Polaroids themselves and artistic composition. Döring-Spengler creates images of humans in situations which are taken out of the documentation's context and brought into a timeless quality.

In those Diazetta-motifs, one witnesses Herbert Döring-Spengler as a politically-thinking artist focused on everyday life who expresses opinions on various events of the late world history in his works. Be it the successful choice of a “loudspeaker“ in the United States or the Brexit with its consequences on the stock-market which eventually entails consequences for the people. The Diazetten are created through similar structures in overlapping and editing we know from his Polaroid-works and show a world in the same way as we are confronted by it, in which everything is connected, everything is overlapped by everything and therefore creates a diversity and polychromatism which might exacerbate one's vista.
Dr. Gabriele Uelsberg, director of LVR Museum Bonn, Germany, 2017


__________________________________________________________________________

„Since middle of the 80's the Cologne artist Herbert Döring-Spengler is concerned with the Polaroid. He began with grooves into the fresh material, with the separation of the layers, combined Polaroid and video, referred to art-historical models and he worked with unusual materials. The mixture happens emotional, the feelings and not the reason following. Döring-Spengler is one of the creative persons in his area. His pictures are born as simple photos or video sequences, colored changed, taken up with Polaroid, torn apart, dried, with their new carrier again as slide, used or again photographed, to at the end either a original Polaroid, silver gelatine print or a C-print are present.
