THE PRESENCE OF ABSENCE (2018-2019)

In the series ‘The Presence of Absence’, Dominique Teufen explores the sculptural quality of illuminated papers, whose curved or folded corners can cast dramatic shadows or create subtle grey shapes. In doing so, she takes on a subject that she repeatedly explores: the paper trompe-l'œil. The brilliantly staged and photographed curves and edges pay homage to nothing less than light itself.
