|Famous for his editorial work, Lauris Paulus has photographed still lives and portraits for numerous international magazines. Simultaneously he has been pursuing his own artistic research, consolidating his vision and developing personal themes. As a result, his work is now exploring three-dimensionality and sound, in addition to the pure photographic medium.
Lauris Paulus probes away at the mistakes and limits of his own practice. He questions his perceptions without ever losing the distant and troubling quality of his images. Never satisfied with the result, he is constantly and anxiously reworking an installation or photographic work. On the boundary between sex and fantasy, the result is a body of work which looks at how things develop into being and which shocks the viewer with its tension and persistence.|
