Schilte & Portielje

Schilte & Portielje (1958)

Lives in Rotterdam. Works in Rotterdam.

SCHILTE & PORTIELJE (NL, 1953 & 1958) Huub Schilte and Jacqueline Portielje intensively explore the rich possibilities of the computer as an artistic medium and have been doing so since 1994. The computer is both their photography dark room as well as a drawing/painting tool. Their work has been featured in numerous exhibitions worldwide and has been included in numerous international private and corporate collections. Schilte Portielje work without a preconceived plan or subject. They both select fragments of images from a digitalized library they have built up over the years. With their selected image fragments, they compose their own dreamworld in black and white, filled with creatures who are endlessly captivating. In their work Schilte Portielje constantly explore the boundaries between fantasy and reality, giving it a certain surreal quality. Could the composed black and white figures exist in real life? Are they in pleasure or pain? These questions make Schilte Portielje’s dreamworld one in which you would like to get lost forever. Text: Ulrich Ruter, Photo Historian
