Celebrity “Textportraits” by Ralph Ueltzhoeffer
Ralph Ueltzhoeffer blends images and text together to create celebrity portraits in his series entitled “Textportraits”.
“Ralph Ueltzhoeffer’s artistic research is dedicated to the relationship of visual and written information in the digital sphere and their relevance for the beliefs one produces from these data. His search for new forms synchronizing visual and written information reacts and reflects on the internet as an open and central source of information in times of globalization and digitalization of data. In the synopses of visible and readable information he engenders visuals which require new perceptional approaches.”Art Typography Posted on July 17, 2012
