connections between daily phenomena
Ronald Nijhof is fascinated by the connections between daily phenomena. He captures the remarkable beauty which flows from these connections in his photographic work. Outside of his studio space he seeks out situationsthat do seem constructed or arranged like a work of art, but aren’t. These observations in turn become spatial compositions, which then become the subject of a photograph once more. The settings are carefully composed from a large selection of elements which were made especially for these photo images. The elements in the photoprints are shown as their actual size; the spatial works are in fact scale models.
This process results in photographic images that play with dimensions and illusion. Despite the almost abstract character of the works, they are registrations of real spatial situations. By making use of photography and spatial constructions, Ronald Nijhof finds himself at the intersection between two-dimensional and three-dimensional images.
