Digital images can display a maximum of 16,777,216 colours; a fact that is not obvious in everyday life, because in visual perception the individual colour pixels are formed into motifs, colour gradients, outlines and shapes. In Adrian Sauer’s artistic work, however, they themselves become thematic. Like other parameters of photography, they are at the service of basic photographic research, which the artist has been conducting for 25 years now. In Sauer’s works, each of these colours is represented by a pixel in a hue of the RGB (red-green-blue) spectrum. This generates images with colour-intensive motifs from digital communication, as well as latent images of grey noise containing all kinds of images.
Truth Table, curated by Susanne Watzenboeck, is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Austria and offers a comprehensive insight into his oeuvre to date.
