Marius von Brasch

Abbey Fellow 2013/14

During his residency in Rome Marius Von Brasch will be concentrating on an in-depth study of one specific painting – Caravaggio's Vocazione di San Matteo in the Chiesa di San Luigi de Francesi. His previous research concerned the Northern Renaissance and in Rome he intends to develop paintings and drawings around the question on how a 'calling/vocation' can be visualised. His practice involves the mutual relationship between strategy and intuition, the handmade or analogue (painting) and the digital media (manipulated photographs reproductions and footage) and he feels having access to the original painting and its setting will greatly enhance this creative tension.
