Chvaly: Uvahy a Fotografie
2000>
Silver prints (14) in original album or book format
7 x 5 in. (178 x 127 mm)
A portfolio of 14 contact silver prints. Each is signed and dated in pen on the recto in the margins, and printed by Helbrich. Helbich is a medical doctor who has been taking photographs since he was 20 years old. He became a close friend of Josef Sudek while he worked at the hospital in Jablunkov in Moravia. He then became Sudek's unofficial apprentice and continued to receive advice and critiques from Sudek. Sudek even gave him the large format camera that he works with. An even earlier influence was Rudolf Janda, who devoted his entire life to photographing the Moravian forests. P. Tausk has written an article, Petr Helbich--J. Sudek's Pupil, in Ceskoslovenska fotografie, 1986, p.10. Also see: Jaskmanicky. Fotografove--Photographers, for more information on Helbich.

Lisa Holden
Lisa Holden: Elusive Eye (Signed Copy)
2005
Book/Catalogue (Signed) softbound
11-1/4 x 11-1/4 in. (286 x 286 mm)
Limited edition of 2,000 copies. Signed by the artist. Essay by Liesbeth Grotenhuis. Published by Nederlandse Gasunie en Van Spijk Art Projects. 64 pages in full color including covers. Lisa Holden is a British-born artist based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Her earlier visual work explores notions of the self as a series of estranged identities-guises adopted and appropriated, and dependent upon context. She combines digital imagery with hand-painted layers to create 'parallel realities', referring to the exploration of displacement, adoption and the reinvention of identity as a necessity for survival. Holden's large-scale, 'digitally flawed' painting-photographs interpret and react to our super-fast-paced, technologically driven society. The result is the artist's depiction of a psychological spiral into more personal fracturing of identity, multiple transformations, and a more isolated self and society. New works clearly bear the stamp of Holden's recent interest in Victorian painting and literature in which richly colored fantasies and hallucinations were often opiate-engendered. These influences manifest themselves in images of actual dreamscapes she recalls on waking--in other words, instinctual wishes of a body and mind desiring to get out.
