Gilles Lorin

The Kunsthandel Jörg Maaß will show a selection of works by Gilles Lorin. This artist photographer and printmaker works with historical and traditional techniques; he carefully choses each process, precious metal and paper, conscious that only such requisite will lead to transcendence. Whether it is a portrait in platinum-palladium or his exquisite works on pure gold-leaf, Gilles Lorin captures the soul and essence of the subject, shielding it magnificently from the flight of time.

Born in Aix-en-Provence in 1973 Gilles Lorin studies painting, drawing, sculpture and photography at the Trinity Preparatory School in Florida. He then studies business Administration at the Loyal University where he takes art history and fine art classes where he considers his interest in art. 1997 Gilles returns to France, studying art history and Archaelogogy at the Université Panthéon-Sorbonne in Paris. He joins the British auction house Christie’s as a specialist in Japanese art. 2001 Lorin returns to the US to work in the family business with Asian antiques. Because of a near-fatal car accident he changes the vision he has of the world. That was the moment when taking pictures became his absolute passion.
For the past fifteen years, he has been exploring all manner of materials and techniques of historical photographic processes, with a particular fondness for glass negatives, photogravure and platinum printing.

Gilles Lorin’s platinum palladium photographs are the equal of any contemporary photographers using this medium today. He is fearless in his imagination, a Master of the Platinum Palladium process.” Martin Axon

We will show a selection of more than 30 works in our gallery. The exhibition is divided into different groups such as Memento Mori & Classical studies, Divin, Flower still lifes and Portraits. During the exhibition the artist will talk about his works and his techniques. There will also be an exhibition catalogue.
