Corinna Holthusen is a conceptual artist specialised in photography and digital imaging. She deals with the topic of convergence of beauty, disgust, artificiality, naturalness …perfectly worked faces, bodies and its destruction through new composition by several parts of different physiognomies.
Since 2016 also haptic breakup by material deposition on the surface of the photo prints. She uses acrylics and pigments to develop an emotional dimension on the print.
‚If in our capacity as viewers, we could delve into the places from where digital photography has emerged, we would be much more suspicious of the images by which we are surrounded. It is this kind of critical distance from the body of photography that we can learn from the works of Corinna Holthusen. In them the past, present and even future of human portraiture are as one.‘
