ABOUT SPRINGER|PARKER

SpringerParkers artworks are, so to speak, subtle and sometimes mysterious stories that are presented in a broad spectrum of media ranging from photography to live performances. The visual expression of the work echoes the intensive study of photography in the early stages of their artistic career. Today the artists freely "scout through sound and images" embracing the collision and intersection of both analog and digital processes in their experimental work. SPs compositions with their highly organic quality are the result of their own way of sculpting and layering of sound material and of the artists particular method to conduct and melt together independent spheres and patterns. Time, transience and memory are recurrent key themes in SPs examinations in which they intertwine abstract expressions with narrative motifs. This work with its unusual visual and acoustic character fascinates and creates a state of contemplation that is noticed by the beholder who always brings along his/her own narratives.
