Description

The work consists of two pieces and is based on photography, transferred to a translucent acrylicpolymer – the so called "skin" –  which is mounted on acrylic glass(perspex). The two images are taken at Venice by night. It is one stair up to a house in a dead end street that ends in the dark and the rusty bars of an old churchwindow. Because of the transfer into the acrylicpolymer – first it is liquid – you can see the brush marks, the distortions of the skin..it is not only the abstraction of the photographic image itself,  but the abstraction that resides of the transferring-process and the material, that  gets your perspective from the sensitive surface to the image and back to the surface. The work deals with the extension of photography and has a painterly quality with the typical light and atmosphere of Venice – the dying city.

Because of the translucent material and the transparent acrylic glass(perspex) the light (for ex. change of daylight) has interesting effects so that the translucidity is sometimes more seen depending on the place of the work and the time of day.
