Statement

Paul Tecklenberg makes photographic images without camera, film or photographic negative. He ‘paints’ with light onto photographic paper using domestic objects as stencils to create haunting images that reveal what is beneath the surface and hidden from the naked eye.

He has developed this technique over the last 15 years using a variety of objects such as Christmas trees, chandeliers, radiators, wedding dresses, maps, broken glasses, sugar sweets, wallpaper and ‘Yakult’ milk bottles. For his most recent solo show Bodies & Anti-Bodies, he used the contents of the bathroom cabinet and kitchen cupboard to make art that resembled microscopic images, x-rays and scans.
