Pauli Mast (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) is an artist who uses photography to stop for a moment and look at the everyday with attention. Through their lens, different layers appear behind the familiar, the obviousness of everyday events and the apparant simplicity. They try to illuminate these observations in their photos and challenge themself and others to connect contrasts. Lightness, darkness, simplicity and chaos, purity and details are often subjects in their work. Pauli started a few months ago with collage making. Their first series, named ‘wien series | 2023’ is also characterized by these contrasts. It sends messages, but the interpretation is always up to the viewer.
