The photographs of Danish artist Per Bix are as beautiful as they are intriguing. Bix often works in series, combining Minimalist and Surrealist sensibilities to create original, open-ended and poetic narratives. The stark beauty of the photograph entitled “Four O’clock of Loneliness,” for example, results in part from the formal perfection of its composition, based on the relationship between light and dark rectangles. But time and psychology referenced in the title transform the image into an enigmatic story. Light, shadow, and emptiness become characters in a psychologically charged narrative.
