Color-Space Paintings, 2011-13


The paintings, oil on canvas , explore visual color-spaces the visual impression of colors that either steps out of the picture plane or leads into the depth beyond its surface. Colors build spaces on a picture plane that we may sense by empathy, a corporeal perception. We project ourselves into the color spaces offering atmospheric qualities as an illusion on a flat surface. The results may hint to something intangible within the color space, yet they are demonstrations of a specific production process, inviting us to dive into form, space and atmospheres.
