It all starts with this retrieved origin of the background, a doubled "random" composition of plane figures. This was one of a serie experimental abstracts I made some years ago.
After some processing and resizing it looks like this, a rather abstract mix of vague lines and noisy rectangles.
After color and contrast adjustments I created ..... Yeah, what?
Many months later the background image inspired to doodling on a new layer. Once combined this results in a awfully busy piece of work. With hindsight this is the 1st generation, the mother-file! Everything that follows is based on a cropped detail of this image. The full scale image (120x120 cm) now decorates a wall in my nephew's new apartment.
This is how the second generation looks. This image has 4 sisters, each of them with a different main theme. This one is called "the blue crocodile".
This 2nd generation piece is "the friendly hulk"
Also 2nd generation: "Octopussy"
"Rowing" is another 2nd generation image. This 80 x 80 cm conceptual design is to be found in Utrecht.
In another project (Upgrading details PART TWO) I will show you how 3rd and even 4th generations images look like. That came to me as a surprise.
Let me know what you think about it and please don't forget to show your appreciation when I earn it.
