Lucent Waters What happens when we abstract from the assumed movement, light and shadow and start to see in terms of design or pattern? The contrast of the materiality of water and vegetation dissolves in the pictorial synthesis into flowing lines and rhythmic patterns. The flow of life, water as an energy source for growth, becomes symbolic. In the inscrutable density of the reflection a color space becomes perceptible, which poses the question to us: Do I want to know the location or does the photographic work offer me space for perception and association?
Quiet, reflecting surfaces of water, gently and evenly undulating water, bubbling and splashing water. The eye seeks the structure, the rhythm. In cropping, in extreme enlargement as well as in the conscious inclusion of analog and digital blurs, the structures melt into amorphous illusions that seem very picturesque, just as if the camera had swapped brushes and paint. The rhythm of linear structures flowing into each other illusorily creates a shimmering movement that gives the pictures their remarkable liveliness.
