The Dutch artist Arno Nollen (1964) makes photographs and films. In the books and installations he creates from this material his personal obsessions, doubts, aversions and feelings of tenderness often coincide with those of his subjects. In the past, he portrayed insecure girls, with an air of indifference and awkwardness.
Arno Nollen graduated from the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam in 1997. For his graduation presentation he received the Esther Kroon award and in 1998 he was nominated for the NPS Culture award. During the past 4 years
he has exhibited, amongst others, in Barcelona, Minneapolis, Berlin and Amsterdam. His work is in important collections both in The Netherlands and abroad.
Arno’s art work is currently exhibited in photomuseum Den Haag, in Nederland until September 18th 2016 His work is exploratory and revolves around photo series; he is not interested in single photographic images viewed in isolation. His repetitive series, sometimes almost devoid of variation, inhabit a grey area between film and photography.
