Look for the pleasure in calm
Digital painting printed on fabric 42.5cm x 32.5. cm (framed)
Looking for calmness in green fields, fresh and water by last night’s rain.
Look For The Pleasure in Calm’ is a digital painting in which geometric shapes combined with colors and games of light and shade cause an automatic association with the natural world. The perfectly and digitally created circles form a sky of clouds, while the additional layer of lines and dissociated colors give the work its depth. A world of juxtapositions is built between the sky, the green color hinting at a plant-filled landscape and the yellow columns suggesting a more grounded structure. Just as the sharp angles and straight lines represent the mechanic gesture in the work, the brushstrokes, imitating movements of a bird, remind the viewer of the artist’s gesture. The ability to create his art at any time, through his portable painting app, is what allows Ackermann to combine the many elements that inspire him everyday.
