Photographed clay sculptures layered into twisted psychological images

Photographer Jeff Klapperich uses an unconventional approach to achieve his unique look infused with tension, transformation, and human emotion. In his series ‘Metamorphosis’ the artist combines drawn, painted, and sculpted elements to create the finished photographs.

“The final photograph is an image of the sculpture captured using creative techniques in lighting and exposure and shot through acetate paintings in a large format camera,” Klapperich explains. “With each step of the process, the image gets further from the reality of the model but closer to an artistic truth.”

The pulled and scraped look of the clay references a dark emotional struggle. The figures are distraught and the clay reveals their psyche as they claw their way out of themselves from the within.

Jeff Klapperich’s ‘Metamorphosis’ series is on view at Mike Wright Gallery in Denver.
