Jakob Kupfer is a photo painter in the true and traditional sense. Light is his media and light is his subject. He is exploring how light can be expressed, or rather: how it manages to express itself effectively in art.
Abstractness and permanent flux are essential qualities both of light in itself and of Jakob Kupfer’s works. His art affords us a peek inside the space between us and all things: the space where light is at play. Through his art we experience the changes in our perception and our imagination when opening our minds to that undefined scope devoid of supporting contours.
»Whatever we are unable to detect is something that we are allowed to conceive anew. Wherever we no longer have to understand is the point where freedom of imagination starts.« (Jakob Kupfer)
