© Levi van Veluw, Gravel, from the series Material Transfers

Levi van Veluw´s photo series are all self-portraits, drawn and photographed by himself: a one-man-process. His works constitute elemental transfers – modifying the face as object – combining it with other stylistic elements to create a third visual object with a large visual impact. The work you see therefore is not a portrait, but an information-rich image of colour, form, texture, and content. The image contains the history of a short creative process, with the artist shifting between the entities of subject and object. Giving familiar elements such as a ballpoint-line a new context results in a confusing conflict between the objects normal associations and the new values given it in this new context. The author and object of these elemental transfers , Levi van Veluw explains his method: “I sit in front of a mirror with several objects and ideas. That day, the process takes shape, and slowly I create a new object I find interesting.”
