Liron Kroll / Liron Kroll
The themes of Liron Kroll’s work are based around the illusiveness of normality.
She is interested in the inherent contradiction in the need to belong to a social structure, but being simultaneously repulsed by it.
Kroll focuses on a specific moment of acknowledgement and realisation. Her characters, those whom we see within the image and those whose presence is only implied, exist in a state of constant conflict. This is emphasised by the rich, carefully constructed environment Kroll achieves using different digital layering techniques.
In her creation process, Kroll dismantles and creates visual worlds, she reassembles and builds new realisms. One of her images may include bits and pieces taken from over hundreds of different photos, photos taken in different times and places. Thereby Kroll disconnects the supposedly “photographic image” from any standard anchors in time and space.
