PAUL THUILE

Paul Thuile was born in 1959 in Bolzano, Italy. His works are exhibited in Italy and around Europe and he has been awarded many prizes. He also teaches art at the University of Bolzano. The theme of perception is the main focus of Paul Thuile large format color photographs. The poetry of his way of drawing mixed with the sharpness of photography gives a unique flavour at every section of his reality. An observed object , a detail in a house, a phone on the corner, an ordinary wire – is reinvented by his hand-drawing on site: drawings on the walls are the artist’s point of view.  They are usually made in old buildings, flats to be refurnished, lofts under restoration and“captured” by professional photographer Augustin Ochsenreiter. Until the final stage everything is under Thuile’s direction and supervision. Finally a d-bond mounted alluminium photograph is the result of the entire artistic process of Paul Thuile (works available for sale). Photography is the objective registration of his experiences but the choice of a photographical image is subjective again. Photology rapresented him since 2004 with two solo shows in Milano, one in Rome and one in Bologna (exhibition still available). In 2008 his works were also included in Bonito Oliva’s group exhibition Italian photoartists
