Abstract acrylic painting, design in image processing software, execution in free brushstroke. A tree stands on a summer meadow, 2012. 20 x 20 colour pixels from a very limited colour palette generate this representation.
[Acrylic painting on canvas 20 x 20 cm, 2012]

2012 I was interested in how much “resolution” and colors are necessary to be able to recognize an abstract object at all. For this purpose I first browsed through my photo collection and found a simple theme (“tree on a meadow on a hillside). Then I successively reduced the resolution and the color palette until the tree was almost not recognizable anymore. Only 20x20 pixels and 20 colors remained. I then mixed the colors with the help of my color mixing software and filled each square with a brush stroke.
A good handicraft exercise.
