About my artistic workflow:
- The philosophical approach:
"If a hen was to paint, it would do so by shedding its feathers", says the French psycho-analysist Jaques Lacan. Similarly, a photograph paints with the very same reality it records, that is, the things themselves. When a photograph "paints" it sheds reality like the hen sheds its feathers. The photographic image that emerges is, in other words, a transgression of the recorded reality.
This is the basic condition Arne Rasmussen's photographic work is founded on, namely that "photography is painting with reality exactly by shedding reality itself". The aesthetic function of the photographic image makes reality the horizontal background of the image.
(Jens Terp MA (Philosophy))
- The practical approach:
Most art works are part of a series. Based on the artistic idea that follows the series, the first part of the work process is to find and record suitable material in reality (digital negatives).
As always, the finished work consists of many digital negatives and the second part of the work process is thus the selection and digital processing of this raw material. This is the most important part in my artistic workflow.
I always have several art work in progress and it typically takes several months before one work is done and ready for print.
The final part of the work process is the choice of print media as well as print and mounting. It will typically be done by a professional art print company.
