Essence #9About this photograph
The Essence series is composed of 12 photographs numbered in ascending order. Each piece represents an abstract vision of the same landscape. Beyond illustration, the series returns to the artist?s favourite idea, being aware that the only invariable in this world is the certitude that nothing is constant. With the great freedom, nearing lyrical abstraction, enabled by visual language, Florian Muller distances himself from the real and transforms the landscape. The spectator is not asked to question what he sees but to question what he feels. These are photographic poems resulting from direct expression and which conjure up a personal emotional response. The artist doesn?t flaunt his savoir faire but proposes his ability to see. To portray the theme of the permanence of movement, the photographer takes up the codes of Op Art and creates vibrant images. He superimposes strongly contrasting coloured layers. The human eye is unable to adapt and the juxtaposition of these colours creates a slight retinal vibration which gives the illusion of movement.Read more Read less
