Glowing powder lines



Title: glowing powder lines
Year: 2022
Size: 3000 x 3000 pixels
Technique: photography, digital artwork

For the 2022 M.A.D.S. event „Adrenocromo for Dinner“, I've started fiddling around with some photos, until they would show certain characteristics. In the process, my focus was on textures, colors, and contrasts, obviously. Finally, I came up with a series of three. De-spite being still-live snapshots, the works express movement and vibrancy. And they may carry a subliminal message. They have a bit of a psychedelic quality and therefore make kind of a drug-related impression. That makes a perfect fit in regards to the theme of the exhibition. I like the ambiguity in the works. Let's call it an „associative misunderstand-ing“, an ambivalence that evokes mystery ...and gives new insights on closer inspection. This artwork is called „glowing powder lines“.
It originates from a photo taken of fragments of tile cement on a wall.
The first thing that came to my mind when coloring this one was that it reminded me of lines of cocaine or the like. And they seem to glow.
