Erwin Olaf 's approach to storytelling is uniquely evocative and enticingly ambiguous. According to critic Francis Hodgson, Olaf 's images "lead us to a 'Stimmung' (a sense of atmosphere) which is broad enough to repay many second readings of the pictures and so keep us viewers interested." In this presentation of his most recent work, Olaf expands on his established style of highly polished, and stylized color studio images to include a series drawn from his sculptural video installation, Keyholes; a group of black-and-white images he has exhibited as carbon prints; and photographs created on location in Berlin-a departure from the constructed mise-en-sc #65533; ne of earlier work produced in his Amsterdam studio. Erwin Olaf: Volume II showcases the artist at the height of his powers, as an artisan of atmosphere and a craftsman who uses high polish to both perverse and seductive effect.
