Seeing is Believing >> Markus Georg

In Markus Georg's new exhibit, "The Power of Images", he uses highly straightforward, even banal-looking images to remind the viewer of, ironically, the power of the imagination.

In his artist's statement, he proposes that imagination is a forgotten currency in our highly empirical world, and that he wants these pieces to "resocialize imagination," which he says is "a fundamental prerequisite for both producing art and its reception." 

Hence, out of highly ordinary materials, which appear at first to be nothing more than exactly what they are, he creates motifs that are just familiar enough to trigger some level of recognition, but not quite literal enough to be understood without the employment of one's imagination.
