3D photos of the artworksThe Madrid photographer Javier González saw at friends the calendar with my latest artworks of the past year. My friends enthused about the artworks and highlighted the three-dimensional effect, which they liked so much at my works. Javier, a specialist for 3D photography searched contacting me, to find out whether it is possible to enforce the 3D effect at the photos by using a better photographic technique.
There are several possibilities and one of these makes it necessary to use eyeglasses with red and green lenses. We decided to use the 2-photos-technique, where one photo is made with the frontal illumination and a second photo is made with a lateral illumination to work out the shadows of the objects. At two dates we made the photos of those artworks, where the 3D effect was visible at best.
Acrylic paint on canvasSince the beginning of my work as artist I was focused on sculptures made by objects of daily use, which were either made as a free-standing sculpture or fixed as a sculpture on a wooden table. Seldom examples of pure paintings are the aquarelles of Málaga from the beginning period, the 4 aquarelles with impressions from the holiday journey in Turkey plus some illustrations of books about the travels at this time.
During the last years I noticed the wish to paint sometimes on canvas. I never did it before. This artistically experience I didn’t want to miss. A generously birthday present of my Mother provided me with 24 canvas. 12 of them in the small size of 80 x 60 cm, 12 of them in the large size of 120 x 80 cm. Additionally acrylic painting in the basic colours blue, red, yellow, green plus white and black as well as palette knives and paintbrushes.
