Turn into a windmill
Digital painting printed on fabric 42.5cm x 32.5. cm (framed)
A structure that converts wind power into rotational energy.
‘Turn Into a Windmill’ 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. The composition, made up of a recognizable blue sky, a pink sky, as if seen through rose- colored glasses, and a line that connects the two, creates an imaginary world left for the viewer to interpret. 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.
