THINGS - Working on layers II

„Understanding layers: Layers are useful

because they let you add components to an image

and work on them one at a time [...] Layers are

like stacked, transparent sheets of glass on which

you can paint images. You can see through the

transparent areas of a layer to the layers below.

[...] Each layer remains independent until you

combine (merge) the layers.” 


The work "Working on layers II" is an attempt to show things in the process of disappearing or transcending. They move on the border between material and immanent; intangible and concrete; light and heavy; smooth and rough. The traces they leave behind are memories of the past, which become blurred through superimpositions and transparencies and thus generate ever new associations.
