Artist Hank Schmidt in der Beek and photographer Fabian Schubert offer a hilarious take on classic outdoor painting. In their collaboration, Und im Sommer tu ich malen (“And in the Summer, I do paint”), Schubert photographs in der Beek at various locations famously captured by artists like Cézanne and Monet. However, rather than focusing on the scenic landscape around him, in der Beek is seen painting the pattern of his shirt.
As in der Beek explains his thought process: “Confronted with the immenseness of the mountains and the littleness of my canvasses, I decided to paint what’s nearest to me instead of what’s afield and giant.” More images from the ongoing photographic series below!
A wonderful series of abstract compositions by photographer Brenda Biondo. Inspired by art theories of colour and perception, Biondo creates aesthetics akin to abstract paintings by folding and cutting printed images of the sky, and then re-photographing these images against the actual sky.
Taking advantage of natural light and atmospheric colour, the result is a kind of optical illusion created entirely without post-production manipulation. See more images from “Paper Skies” below.
