The first of these were taken in Dubai in 2011 and show the Burj Al Arab hotel (see image). There is a fluid transition between day and night; it is dusk, the twilight hour. The morning light with its often diffuse mood creates a charming contrast. A fleeting moment with all gradations of color between light, dark and gray provides the time for these shots. The title “ABSTRACT LIGHT PAINTINGS” – playing, painting with light, in botanic landscapes, in nature. Abstract images out of space and time, blurred and in motion, leave space for our associations and memories. The vagueness cuts to the core and reveals the essential: the color spectrum and teasing of the nuances. The abstract images are frozen moments in time, suffused with the beauty and intensity of nature. Contemplating them, the viewer transcends the boundaries of experience and the real world.
