Painting: Acrylic, Photo on Canvas, Wood.
The photograph shows the City Palace of Udaipur, Rajasthan, India, famous from the James Bond movie "Octopussy". I took it during an artist residency at ArtJunction in 2015. Printed on Canvas and then over painted with my "Gravity" style. Tai-Chi waves flow freely down, pulled by gravitational force.
The idea behind gravity is peace:
The world has become a more tolerant place in the last few decades thanks to new technologies, ways of communication and vast possibilities for everyone to achieve dreams. Despite this fact, more people than ever are starving, nationalistic movements or religious thoughts of superiority keep popping up and leaders use them to their advantage, to exploit their people and fight wars. We keep forgetting that we are all more alike than different! Highly developed human beings.
My „Gravity“ paintings are a symbol of peace for everyone to see that we are the same.
I use gravity to co-create them, to demonstrate that even though we might look different, we might live in different areas and have different believes or just a different sex, we are all the same species. Gravity is slightly different at various places even though on the same world, our blue planet. We also are slightly different, each and every one of us – but just like gravity we are more alike than different.
I will paint those artworks all over the world to demonstrate exactly this. I will be inspired by local variations and create a variety of artworks but always co-created with gravity.
