Alice van den Berg

Photography, video

Statement

The composition of his photographic plans and his video plans are reflected like the composition of a painting. She is influenced by the painting she has practiced and studied before. Very quickly, we can observe a palette of colors recurring in his series, which send us back to the past.

Places of passage or memory fuel his daily work and stimulate his desire to travel in time.

His images are often bathed in vaporous atmospheres and chiaroscuro, specific to the symbolism and classicism whose aesthetic values ​​cross his work. Just as there is the relationship between the painter and his model, it establishes a relationship between the photographer and his model.

Finally, his work is a crossroads of epochs imbued with a certain nostalgia. It makes us travel in genre paintings. It insists on the soul of places, haunted not the memory of those who lived there.
