3 January-4 June - Fleeting Images. Photograpic works by Casper Faassen

On display in the exhibition ‘Fleeting Images. Photographic works by Casper Faassen’ are 14 works that illustrate the transience of worldly existence.


Inspired by the multifaceted world of printmaking, Faassen’s creations consist of various layers of photography and painting. The fine pattern of ‘cracking’ added to illustrate the passing of time, emphasises the contrast between beauty and decay. Appearing and disappearing form the theme in this series in which the transience of art and photography is immortalised.
