  • About the work

Mirror, eglomise, hand-signed by the Artist, 1997.

EGLOMISE

The series includes photo works performed in accordance with a really antique near-extinct technique called Eglomise. The technique proper was invented as early as in 13th century and centuries later, namely in the 18th century, it became known as Eglomise, after a French artist named J.-B. Glomi. He became known for his engravings on plates the downside of which was covered with gold-leaf and a thin layer of lacquer.

In the 18th century, Eglomise pieces were used to decorate furniture or, in a more general sense, as a component of the interiors in mansions and palaces. To Vladimir’s credit, in this series he has managed to smartly combine modern photographic arts and the antique technique. Indeed, traditional photographic artists put photos they shot under glass and do their best to prevent ambient interior pieces from being reflected in the glass. To this end they either use anti-glare glass or try to minimize reflection phenomenon through illumination adjustment. On the contrary, those who favor the Eglomise technique first make mirrors manually and then damage their emulsion on purpose.

The task is to create the effect of a damaged emulsion transparent enough to show a photo of a person, landscape or whatever. Eglomise-based photos have something reminiscent of spiritualistic sessions, fortune telling and everything else we associate with the magic of the mirror. Such photos are more interior friendly than their ordinary counterparts because they “absorb” the ambient space as it were. Any reflected image is integrated into the photo. In other words, the richness of the interior makes respective photos look more impressive.

Change your angle of vision and the photo you are looking at will change accordingly.


About the Artists

1962 Moscow, Russian Federation

Vladimir Clavijo-Telepnev is one of the most famous modern photographers in Russia, who managed to make a perfect career being faithful to his principles in art and life. His works are usually divided into various series. He uses different methods and styles, working with different themes, but always in monochrome palette, adding sepia and weak shades of colour. Clavijo-Telepnev deliberately stints himself in using colours to put a greater emphasis on lines, forms and plasticity. His photographic works are usually drawn towards retro.

Vladimir's work of arts were put up for auction at PHILLIPS de Pury in 2003 in New York, in 2008 in London and New York, in 2010 in New York; at GENE SHAPIRO in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 in New York and at HERITAGE AUCTIONS in 2011 in New York.

THE AUTHOR'S WORKS ARE PART OF THE PRIVATE COLLECTIONS KEPT BY DMITRY MEDVEDEV, NURSULTAN NAZARBAEV, ELTON JOHN, PRINCESS MICHAEL of KENT MARIE CHRISTINE and PETER GREENAWAY.
