Row with Rüegger

I love art that isn’t easy.

When an artist subverts his or her art form to create something intriguing, it is love at first site.

Swiss photographer Romy Rüegger does it very well.

Working with surfaces and using close-ups and bluriness, she successfully questions the very foundations of photography: the need to reproduce reality in a faithful way.

It is far more interesting to challenge some basic notions and the viewers’ expectations than just to provide what we want, especially in a world already saturated with images.

Artists like Rüegger give new strength to art mediums.

How refreshing.
