Art Description

Painting: Oil and Spray Paint on Canvas.

The „blurry series“ is a different take on the classic portrait. As for centuries it was a common way to make sure somebody was remembered (even beyond death) and rooted in the present by the painting I tried to express rather the opposite in the „blurry series“.

The features of the faces fade into the background and loose their importance. What becomes more prominent is a feeling of memory, of evanescence. I tried to captivate a blink of an eye, a fraction of time to illustrate the limits of our lifetimes.
