    Jochen Cerny

    Investment banker, family father and friend to Andreas Gursky. Jochen has an impressive life story to tell. It was a re-union with the latter, childhood friend and world famous photographer Andreas Gursky that caused Jochen to reinvent himself as an award winning photographer.
     
    Having inherited his artistic skills from both his grandmother, a passionate photographer, as well as his father who worked with many of the industries top photographers, he quickly abandoned his early attempts to become a professional photographer in favour of an international career in investment banking. After stops in Frankfurt, London and New York, Jochen is back in the game and causing quite a stir. Capturing objects from different angles, he modifies his motives using the self-developed “CMPB technique” without alienating their complexity. The results are mesmerizing images that put the viewer into an unexpected color space and directly influence ones perception of the object without alienating its essence and basic features.
     
    It didn’t take long for Jochen’s career to gain international traction with awards in important photo challenges such as the Trierenberg Circuit, Monochrome Awards, Fotoforum Magazine and Viewbug. Following exhibitions in Germany, Hong Kong and London, Jochen Cerny is the first artist to be featured in our new Emerging Artists Viewing Rooms.
     
    This also marks the first time that Jochen is offering his works in editions of 3 (versus his usual editions of 10) making this selection of works his rarest on the market.

    Tennis Court is part of the series “SIMPLICITY” published in 2020 and shows the baseline of a tennis court.

    The spectator will realize the real object immediately though the colors have been manipulated to emphasize the angle of the shot. This minimalistic approach can be seen as extending the abstract idea that art should have its own reality. According to Frank Stella “what you see is what you see” this work is set out to expose the essence, essentials, or identity of a subject through eliminating all non-essential forms, features, or concepts.

    Infinity XXXI is part of the series INFINITY and shows a hallway in a cloister in Kyoto/Japan leading the spectator into infinity.

    Inspired by various well-known "Light & Sound" artists, the works confirm the attempt to translate this topic into an image using purely photographic means. The central focus of the images is the theme of infinity, captured in a variety of ways, taking into account his characteristic color design using the CMPB technique he developed. "Infinity" comes from the Latin word "infinitas" and describes an object or operation without end or end, but possibly with beginning or beginning. Most works of light art require the extensive absence of natural light and competing for artificial light sources to develop their full effectiveness. In contrast, however, the artist incorporates natural light into his composition. He tries to make light as a natural medium sensual and spiritually tangible. With his motif design, he gives the moment duration. He emphasizes that his art can be described as the "art of perception". In large-format, atmospheric images, infinity is seemingly materialized and the viewer is led into boundaries of perception. As a matter of course, the gaze also turns inward, opens up the possibility of self-perception and self-reflection, to the meditative observation of one's own vision.
