Artist Jürgen Weber
The artist Jürgen Weber has developed a form language for his sculptures, objects, instalments and Bodyart sessions which remind one of archaic times.
His world of ideas is erotic and surreal, he works with various materials and combines these with varying shapes and subjects to create a unique esthetical effect.
Colour combination, structural elements and stencils join together to produce a 3-dimensional effect which has been improved on over the years.
Jürgen Weber works freelance and is in demand world wide by advertising agencies, business companies and public establishments.
The BODYMERGE Project
The photo artist Jochen Rolfes and the artist Jürgen Weber have been working together since 2010 on Bodymerge, their joint project. Photos are created out of doors, in studios and in exceptional places.The theme “Integration” plays an important role in their work. The models absorb colour, shape and structure of their surroundings in such a way that they seem, in a surreal manner, to blend into their environment. This blending in is made possible by the painting of the models with monitor pictures. The camera view finder is projected onto a monitor so that the model can be integrated from a definite viewing angle and in this way an exact viewing point for the observer is defined.
The basic idea for the individual motives is developed during intensive discussion between the two artists. The combination of Jürgen Weber’s experience as a sculptor, painter and designer and Jochen Rolfes’ photographic eye for photo construction and design as well as position and body language of the models, provides the decisive, cognitive moment for the creation of the photos.
