e-pastel (mazandaran)

this of my latest e-pastel series was influenced by the minimalist beauty of mazandaran kilims.
while trying to simulate the fabric structure using processing code, many unexpected offers were found and finally the entire project ended in an independent new work group.
i use the subtitle “mazandaran” just allegorical, as a reference to my original impulse.

noiseScape

simulating a landscape like horizontal space, the works of the 2020  noiseScape series are based on different perlin-noise functions

noise warp

the noise warp series
is based on a 2D X/Y noise structure that uses elongated shapes to simulate expressive brushstrokes used in 20th-century painting. Details »

e-pastel 2019

the e-pastel series consists of a X Y axis grid of bezier vector curves. a separate vector curve class defines all vector properties such as color,
transparency and/or stroke weight. to later position them within different grid arrays.
different automated and/or keyboard input values are used for a layered image build up.

gen-draw II

gen-draw II is a generative drawing work-series. it’s based on generative RGB value dependent curve drawers. by using different photos, either within a random array or run by manual order (keyboard), i’m weaving image layers or parts of images together.
with the mouse i control the curve radius and stroke width. so the whole process is kind of an action painting, mixing forms and colors and structure, very speedy. mostly it produces much trash, a few to keep…
the motifs came together during my walks in the lake district of brandenburg, north of berlin, during the great summer of 2018.
software coded in processing
output: vector for print (unlimited scalable )

abracadabra

abracadabra 82247

the abracadabra series is made with a set of square frames using processing svg load. the disableStyle(); function is used for code based coloring and the getChild(); function
for individual coloring of polygon parts out of one multi poligonal svg file. it uses an svg array list. the iteration algorithm is dividing
a shape down within a x-9 level loop. each repetition of the process is also called an “iteration”. the results of one iteration are used
as starting point for the next iteration. a whole bunch of commands are either random and/or on keyboard/mouse action for recording…
