APRIL 10 – APRIL 29, 2014



SAGE PROJECTS in association with Ace Hotel DTLA are pleased to present Los Angeles based fine art photographer and filmmaker, Matthias Koenigswieser, in his first solo exhibition. “CHIAROSCURO”, a Renaissance-derived term describing an artist’s extreme use of light and dark, appropriately titles this body of work which challenges the viewer to slow down and view life through a different, albeit well-travelled, lens. Each emotionally charged image evokes narrative and mood, a story unfolding before the viewer’s eyes.

Born and bred in one of Europe’s finest cities, and an alum of San Francisco’s Academy of Art, Koenigswieser’s  extreme dedication to his craft emanates through his work. A master storyteller, he captures his images on analog film with the help of only natural light, adding an ethereal, voyeuristic layer to each of his works. This photographic series captures and communicates those cursory memories that exist only in our minds. Often fleeting moments of beauty, nostalgic and full of sentiment, place the beholder both in the role of observer and that of the one being watched. Thus audience and image create an emotional synergy essential to the exhibition.

Matthias Koenigswieser is an Austrian born filmmaker and fine art photographer living and working in Los Angeles. This exhibition is on view through April 29th in Segovia Hall at Ace Hotel Downtown LA and by private appointment.
