German born Ines Tancré spent most of her life living abroad. Inspired by the diversity of environments paired with an ongoing challenge of renewing and preserving self she started her FOTOART and mixed media work in1995. The reality of photography is the base for estrangement effects leading to images with their own new meaning. Some photos are “melted” by undergoing a printing or transfer process, others are coloured and combined in collages. My abstract work reflects the quest for simplification. Duality as the base of perception finds its expression through words and numbers. Her work has been shown internationally.
