OM

The work “OM”  focuses on combining the classic techniques of photography and painting.

“I have not created these old polaroids/photographs with a camera, or negatives, but through the playful manipulation of light, chemicals and colour. Accidents, produced by the medium itself, reveal the process by which the photographs are created.”

“After much trial and error, I find a way to control the influence of the chemicals inside the film and shape abstract structures of images with powerful colours. It is often surprisingly simple. My work describes the search for a self built, natural, disorderly, constructed structure.”
