Some Storytelling Series
Andy Leborne is considered as a great visual storyteller, (siti di fotografi stranieri), a visual artist who lives in Luxemburg and Florida. Born 1965, he grew up in Düsseldorf, Germany. Educated in professional photo techniques by the New York Institute of Photography, Andy began his artistic work with traditional 35mm film cameras, but soon turned to larger formats and very early he started to use digital image processing. Today he embraces all the advanced techniques of digital photography, especially for his 'Reversed Image' works. Here, his paintings and sculptures serve as raw material, which are then photographed and freely composed for the final picture.
Andy actually wants to ask questions about the loneliness and surrealistic character inherent in life and things. Therefore, Leborne’s artistic position is distinguished by complementary and controversial concepts. Is our whole environment as real as we usually feel it? And more importantly, by trying to reverse our viewpoint, might there be a chance to escape, at least now and then? The frequent conversion of his paintings into black and white photography, for example, suggests just that. But also his single paintings and sculptures are understood as though provoking to questions of the relations between people and reality.
Leborne lives and works rather reclusive today and his works are mostly collected by private clients and companies all over the world, which is a good match for his travel activities. He took assignments now and then, if they were in line with his message; for instance the German ‘Computerzeitschrift’ published his portraits of sales women, being the best in their field, or some architectural work for a real estate’s developers promotion campaign. His landscapes could be watched during a permanent exhibition in a private gallery in Stockholm in 2010. His single exhibition 2012 in the Netherlands 'Lonely but not alone' was a great success with about 2000 visitors. Andy is featured in the saatchi online homepage in September 2013.
