Kluge, born in 1964 in Wolfsburg, Germany, has presented his Lightgraphic
Arts in over 150 exhibitions since his first exhibition in 1988. His
pictures have enjoyed
great success with the public in museums, galleries, palaces, castles
and cathedrals all over the world, in Germany as well as abroad, from Moscow to
New York, from Istanbul to St. Petersburg.
painter, Steffen Kluge has been working for a long time, neither with a brush
nor with a canvas or colours but with pure light. The photography is staying in
his large-scale process, which is profiting from the possibilities of optic,
only as a small stone at the end of a long run way.
Lightgraphic Arts reveal not many marks of this large-scale
technical creation-process. Moreover, the pictures of Steffen Kluge are full of
high aesthetics, harmony and mystery of their creation.
critics have often compared Steffen Kluge's Lightgraphic Arts with dreams, fairy
tales, and wonder, as well as with elemental force, prophetic worlds
and the supernatural. The artist leaves his onlookers the choice of
their own free interpretation of his pictures.
