Ruud van Empel’s first American solo exhibition invites us to contemplate vibrant photo-art collages of fabricated realities.

"Strange Beauty" features over 40 of van Empel’s digitally enhanced pieces, displaying images of perfect beauty with sinister undertones. Van Empel constructs his works through staged photography, digital enhancement and collage. "Strange Beauty" will be on display from Oct. 12, 2012 - Feb 1st, 2013.

His modern technique and composition is a product of an artistic journey, which spanned graphic design, theatre and television. Hence, each image holds a distinctly theatrical air.

"Strange Beauty" is made possible by the generous support of our lead sponsor, UC San Diego Health System.
