radial-division II (8987), vivera pigment print on MX1, stretched on a circular frame, 60 cm

radial-division II
is based on image color data, which is plotted on many different polar coordinate systems – radial bar charts.
all the color tables are aligned radially from the largest outer to the inner 0 chart ring with different start and end points.

i started out playing around with different data visualisations. soon i was more and more interested in again manipulating the rather technical output towards my idea of a abstract painting, a certain composition.
so the inherent data visualization function has been used without regard for its numerical output, but rather for the interplay of  colors and positions, which finally build up the image composition.

the latest works of this series–from 2018–are not on a circular board, but as seen here (still as mockup only), cut with laser along the outer fraying form, so that a more radiating impression is supported.

e-pastel 2016-18


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 keyboard input values are used for a layered image build up.

wave fields


wave fields IV (2016)
is a rework of an ongoing script. it morphs slowly into a kind of “romantic” landscape painting.
the technical basics are still very simple; rows of ellipses with some 2d noise and different color arrays. nevertheless, quite much fine tuning between all sorts of values and many little randoms and noises were done.. Details »
