As their new exhibition SILENT MONKEY open its door in Netherland, here comes OMISSION a curated selection by the German duo Billy and Hells.
The legend says in the eighties Anke Linz and Andreas Oettinger met each other in a disco in the countryside, and started working together ever since under the artist name Billy & Hells.
Perfecting their style through trials and error, they manage to create a world of their own, full of rich textures, sumptuous palettes of colors, driving us in compositions and atmosphere who looks borrowed from the classical painting history.
Despite a long career, almost no publication of their work have been released apart from exhibitions catalogs. This opus puts an end to the unfair place it occupies in the hands of collectors of books on the scene of art photography, but also give a chance to everyone to appreciate the wide size print effect.
This very unusual unfold-to-read format, let us enter gradually in the spirit of these masters, allowing us to gradually come closer to the pitch dark and subtile vibrance of the pictures, with a final the same-size as their gallery prints.
