RESONANCE SPACE The dynamics of abstraction

2022.04.05

Before formulating the basic laws of dynamics, we need to formulate a general law of nature, in the special case of which all the basic laws of dynamics can be given. This general law of nature is the law of conservation of momentum. The amount of motion, or impulse, of a point of mass m and velocity v is                                                                 / L = m x v /

systems whose external forces result in zero are called closed systems. The law of conservation of momentum states that the total momentum and the total amount of motion of any such closed system are constant. With the help of this law, the basic laws of dynamics, also known as Newton's laws or Newtonian axioms, can be deduced.

The dynamics of abstraction

One body maintains its state of rest or its smooth motion in a straight line until another body forces it to change it. In terms of forces acting on the body, this formulation means in practice that the result of forces acting on the body at rest or in a straight line is always zero.

Newton's Law The acceleration of a point-like body of constant mass is proportional to the force acting on the body and is inversely proportional to the mass of the body. Acceleration points in the direction of the force acting on the body.

Newton III. the common name of his law is the principle of reaction-reaction or action-reaction: when two bodies interact, two forces of equal magnitude but opposite meanings occur

The dynamics of abstraction

There seem to be no bodies in painting, yet colors have dynamics. How is all this possible? In the fine arts, the science of color dynamics, which examines the relationship and interaction of colors to each other, exists specifically in color theory. What is interesting in all is the presence of man as an external observer or creator who influences the interaction of these factors - elements - colors. But it affects not only the system of relations, but also their overall effect on a third party who is none other than the observer who receives the work of art. In this form, colors gain a raison d'être in an embodied form, although they are not capable of relocating under the physical law of the word, yet they become a factor in the process of constructing a work of art.

The definition almost takes you back to the origin of the work to the starting point of the manifestation of the thought. At the same time, it opens up space for completely free material use and experimentation, to fill the role of chance arising from the behavior of a substance with meaning. The paradox is that even small-scale paintings can encompass enormous dimensions, but at the same time, by increasing the canvas, one is pushing the limits of one's creative physical ability. New approaches need to be introduced. The structural interaction between the interaction of materials and their behavior should be considered as a building block of the image as well as the conscious use of a brush. Here we move on to dimensions that show an emotional richness and formless form due to their technical quality. As an observer, it puts our sensitivity and senses to the test. Are we able to accommodate this kind of spatial effect without perspective?

In this case, the work no longer only allows for one point of view, but offers itself undiscovered for exploration. It's almost walkable. At first glance, a 2-dimensional image opens up and explores its relationship and beauty in countless new dimensions. It is not possible to describe this network of connections, the more it hopes for cellular reception. The emotional world of the creator and the many accumulated experiences and impressions are condensed into a single image. Colors compete for attention. As time for observation or discovery progresses, where one or the other harmony of color progresses. Light plays a particularly important role. It constantly changes the dynamics and structure of the interface and content. Here, the paradigm of less is lost. The more, the more! Color richness is not a surface in itself. The richness of color is equal to time. Time encompasses the present moment moving towards the future, while opening multidimensional gates.

Multidimensional space contains everything that exists at once. Time, mass, energy and space. In view of these infinite possibilities of abstraction, abstraction itself is a journey that is embodied in the creative process and comes to life in the end. Its existence becomes extensive and fills the space. Live.

The dynamics of the mixing and interaction of colors affect the observer, not only in the physical sense, but also in the perception of colors in the brain. ). Therefore, the colors themselves express moods and emotions, and therefore have an impressive / indifferent / repulsive effect on our visual feelings and souls.

The different colors, in themselves, mixed with each other - interacting with each other - in any case create a very different atmosphere and have a different effect on everyone. Colors, the magic of colors, can literally dynamize people. But why?

According to previous research, when languages ​​were formed, the names of colors were assumed to have been created in the same order in all languages. First white and black were given names (it was day and night), then red (fire appeared). These were followed by green (the foliage of the trees) and then yellow (earth and sand) or vice versa. The naming continued with blue (man reached the sea and the sky became important as well) followed by brown (first Bronze Age jewelry) and finally came purple, pink, orange and gray. These are clearly the colors of flowers and fruits. With the development of technology, the appearance of artificial, chemically produced colors, the possibility of variation of colors is practically endless, but for us the difference between the individual colors is no longer perceptible. The research points out from the aspect of the evolution of color dynamics.

Resonance Space as an artistic concept, the unfolding of a thematically based oeuvre approach. Personal reflection on the connection and development of changes in the inner consciousness and the outer world. A deep and committed belief in capturing a continual artistic impression, yet sensitive reactions to the abstract presentation of the dynamics of nature as well as the world. It is a constant pursuit of cognition and discovery, and then the feedback of the resulting recognition to the levels of self-analysis. It is not just self-knowledge, but an attempt to expand the world of consciousness and the senses through art. The multi-dimensional processing of the world's impulses, which is at the same time a return to the past, but also a research into the future, while resonating in the present moment. From this is born the dynamics of abstraction. The process itself is so multifaceted that we hardly have any idea how much everything affects the end result. There is a way that a particular topic, ripe for weeks in a person, almost pervades day and night. There are no sketches and studies. There is simply a sense of connection with the forces of nature itself. Then comes the condensed "moment" when all this accumulated energy suddenly erupts and manifests itself in an uncontrolled creative force.

The Resonance Space can be experienced specifically in this force field. Its artistic aspect can be seen in the arrangement of abstraction into harmony. The phenomenal state itself is a process and an unrepeatable visual representation is the end result. It requires such a sophisticated orientation of consciousness and senses as when we notice a bird's song heard from afar in a bustling big city. The resonance changes at the moment. The joy hormone is released in our bodies and our attention continues to flow on completely different planes. Our whole being is engrossed and deeply storing this experience.

The Resonance Space is born again and again, nourished by this emotional memory and long-lasting emotion. Either for the Furious Universe or the Never Again paintings. Condensing elemental nature, time, and artistic perception into a single action. The explosion of the subject, which has matured for months, will eventually lead to the complete destruction of thought. The unfolded and free consciousness opens up space for the infinite possibility of events and appearance transcends dimensions through painting. The energy of the painting conveys depth, strength and dynamics. Starting from the small details and then looking at the whole picture, it becomes a total painting.

In the concept of Resonance Space, total painting reinterprets our beliefs so far. Not only is connection made through the senses, but our mental and broad-spectrum emotional world also comes to life. Our being and existence are condensed into a single point. You will be focused. The intoxicating feeling of happiness pervades our cells and we can experience the spark of the experience of boundless existence. Art is complete. He doesn't want to portray. He wants to feel it. To experience and breathe from formal obligations. It breaks away from the world of representation of creation and takes the place of emotional intelligence. We resonate together with the higher spheres of existence in which consciousness becomes a dimension.

The Never Again painting in the Resonance Space series is a reflection on the negative events of the world, in this case associated with war. After a long conversation, the experience almost condensed for me. I felt the accumulated tension and anger in my stomach at this horror of futility. The painting shows no figural content. It simply vibrates at the same frequency, amplifying the negative emotions associated with human destruction. He keeps the recognition, the realization, the face as a mirror. We can't stick our heads in the sand like nothing happens. The essence of Resonance is the amplified representation and reflection of the frequency of the world.

Never Again is one of the strongest, emotionally filled natural paintings in the Resonance Space series. The rough, brushless use of color and the technique chosen, in which the canvas was layered folded and the surfaces interacted as well as embedded in the allegory as a shroud of Turin. The interaction of the surfaces symbolizes precisely that the events of our world are throbbing, influencing factors as a butterfly effect. Embodiments of causality. After spreading, the paint deposited on the canvas appears as a relief map. But if all that weren't enough, it's the attribute of the Cross, the nail as the means and symbol of crucifixion also appear.

The canvas unfolds before us. Traces of reflections are visible. The colors crease and thicken, but the new life already seems to be sprouting in the clear, shimmering shades under the umbrella of destruction.

The tragedy of war, ironically apostrophized, can still be eye-catching if we look at the harmony and relational system of textures. In all of this, Resonance is an artistic reflection of our inner and outer worlds. It builds up first and then breaks itself down for rebirth, in the hope of a better world.
