Destruction/Creation Print Exhibition by Chris Slabber

Home > Winners > #36138


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Destruction/Creation

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Print Exhibition

INSPIRATION:
Originally inspired by the works of Alberto Seveso, I wanted to explore the technique of dripping paint into water in order too make it my own interpretation. I loved the abstract expressionistic values created as the paint reacts with the water. Every image instantly becomes its own work of art.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The project was for an exhibition in 2014 entitled "Creation from Destruction". The aim was to portray this statement without using the stereotypical elements that would symbolise life and death. The idea behind this series was to show that from Destruction comes Creation. As the paint falls there is a constant point of creation, but at the same time it destroys itself.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
On first glance the artwork comes across as just a beautiful cloud of paint captured within water. On further inspection the viewer will uncover the hidden face within each piece. This enables the viewer to enjoy the artistic as well as the technical process. But since the paint becomes abstract expressionism, it will allow each individual viewer to see his/her own shapes or visions within each of the clouds thus making each piece a personal experience based on each viewer's personality.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in February 2014 and finished in March 2014 which was exhibited at the KKNK 2014 at Gallery Art Karoo in April 2014.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Photography and Photo Manipulation Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
By making use of an ordinary fish tank filled with water, I mixed acrylic paint and poured it into the tank. As the paint fell I used high speed photography in order to capture the progression from the point of entry to where the paint would fill the entire tank. From here I had to select the best shots in order to digitally manipulate human faces into the image using Adobe Photoshop.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Final print dimensions - 841mm x 50mm x 1189mm

TAGS:
paint, fine arts, photography, photo manipulation, photoshop, abstract, surrealism

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The hardest part was too figure out the correct consistency of the acrylic paint in order for it too interact on the perfect level with the water. Too thick and it would just drop too the bottom in a solid chunk. Too thin and it would disappear too quick. Once the photography was completed I had to explore the technique of compositing the human face into each piece. The goal as too make it as subtle as possible in order for the viewer to complete the image in his/her mind.

CHALLENGE:
As mentioned, the consistency of the paint was the biggest challenge. it needed too have the perfect balance between staying a solid shape, but with enough flow to interact with the water. The other challenge was too obtain enough light for the camera shutter too work as fast as possible in order too capture each moment as crisp as possible. On the digital side making the faces within each piece seem believable and not like something just stuck on was a huge challenge.
