Read about Jean Jacques Ribi
Jean Jacques Ribi has an educational background in film which has enabled him to create a series of works which he has termed Photopaintings. Enamored by photography and the almost limitless possibilities digital programs offer for their manipulation, Ribi has created pieces where he takes from hundreds, if not thousands, of photographic materials to create images that encompass a multitude of symbols and icons taken from popular culture and of nature. Overly saturated, his images present us with juxtapositions of items that relate to each other in the physical world but are made aware to us using digital means. He superimposes images of branded content on human bodies or creates fantastic and wonderful landscapes filled to the brim with contrasting images and colors.
