The Frankfurt-based artist, Wolfgang Uhlig always keeps his focus on the sea, capturing this atmospheric subject at different times of day and in diverse weather conditions. Providing a common structure, the horizon is what ties Uhlig’s Ocean series together, allowing him to present the shifting colours of sky and sea in a formation of clearly defined lines.
At dawn, the sea is bathed in a soft light. Soon thereafter, the sun highlights its powerful colours. With great subtlety, the photographer creates his images of the sea in the most diverse shades of blue. Through his atmospheric approach, the artist captivates the viewer, evoking memories of the classical landscape paintings of William Turner or Caspar David Friedrich. Uhlig’s insightful works are links to art history that stand out through their sheer precision.
