Mathilde Karrèr (1979, Amsterdam) loves color, accessories and flowers to create lavish, eclectic yet subtle
compositions with a captivating narrative.
Half-way between paintings and movie stills, her photographs are elaborate,
visually-rich micro worlds with knowingly chosen details.
Her lighting expertise and the wish to make every image premium, texturised
and rich; this is what make her photography stand out.
Many of her works, she develops and styles herself.
"The art of painting, in many styles, have subconsciously, a big influence in my work.
Also late 20th century movies, the production and set design, I find inspirational.
How to tell a story using references, props or visual language from Pop Culture and Art History, is an intensive process, where technical knowledge and intuition have to become one to create an image.
I like to approach a project as a director, set designer and photographer in one.
Certain themes will re-emerge in my work, like the the strong connection to the classical still life, however I like to experiment, try out new a new approaches and push my own reference framework"
