Sebastiaan BREMER

Bremer’s technique is novel, and utterly hybrid. Using various inks, he draws directly on slightly blurry C-print enlargements of photographs, and often adds splotches and streaks of photographic dye. Almost always, the underlying photographic images have much to do with personal and family history: a best friend from Bremer’s teenage years, a shot of himself as a kid, a view of a room taken from under his grandmother’s piano, his family on vacation, a former girlfriend. (...)
As the images in Bremer’s photographs come in and out of view, they seem sunken and half-hidden in the picture plane and by extension in some remote chamber of the brain.
