I wanted to create a very abstract and pure painting that intrigues and attracts you like a magnet. That's how "Strange Violet" was born.
The artwork painted dark violet creates a soft, velours like atmosphere. Only the shadows on the painting reveal that there is a rectangle in the middle.
This three dimensionnal painting or wall object if you prefer, is also strange in a second way as the picuture below will show you.
Another secret is hidden behind the rectangle: a strange construction that creates a lift-off from the background of 5 cm.
Creating this artwork released a lot of new ideas in my head and I will probably make a serie of artworks with hidden sides and ohter visual effects.
I wrote this texte in January while it was freezing outside and impossible to use my workshop. This doesn't mean that I was totally blocked. Instead, inside the house during Winter I fill in applications for future exhibitions, I take care of the administration, make some sketches for new artworks, contact art galeries and write some articles for my the website and Facebook ofcourse. I hope you appreciate.
