Jan Dibbets

LOVING the work of Deutch-born conceptual (land) artist and photographer Jan Dibbets. His work can be seen at the excellent Gladstone Gallery which have locations in both New York and Brussels.

"Dibbets was trained as a painter at the St. Martin's School of Art in London and by Jan Gregoor in the Netherlands.[1] He is associated with the land art and conceptual art movements of the 1960s and 70s and holds an international reputation. His oeuvre is primarily concerned with light, observation, perspective, and space. He is known for his early work in perspective correction through the use of photography. Using string or tape on a flat surface, Dibbets forms a square or rectangle to exploit the illusion of perspective that is created by a camera. This then creates a second illusion of the square simultaneously existing off and out of the picture plane." More here ...
