Burning Sunset

A week ago I posted about "Fotopentrito" and "Fotopentriti". Two words the American panter Karina Mosser and I coined to describe our new collaboration in painting on a photograph.

For this post, I had quickly put together a triptych. It consisted of a painting by Karina, a photo of myself and a digital fusion between the two.
The response on that triptych was so positive that I sat down to make it a real set of 3 artworks.

Here is the result, available as a triptych in any size. Besides that, the artworks are also for sale as three separate works, of course also in any size you desire.
And of course available as limited edition artworks or as open edition prints.

On the left a painting by Karina, on the right a photo by me, in the middle a digital blend of the two.

Through my artworks I ask you to reflect for a moment on the nature around you, on the beautiful feeling that nature can evoke, on what we lose when we continue on the road of 'never enough'.

Sunrise Serenade

A unique fusion of fine art photography and painting !

Sunrise brings a serenade beyond the dark silence of the night. The tender light gently touches the water and the reeds, in a duet with the wind

In recent months, the painter Karina Mosser (USA) and I have been collaborating in various ways in the creation of new artworks. And with this artwork "Sunrise Serenade", we have taken a new path. Karina painted on a print of one of my photographs.

The photo is printed on museum quality Hahnemühle Photo Rag. And on it Karina painted with ink and watercolor.

The buyer of this work will receive it from Karina, signed and with certificate of authenticity.

I made this impressionistic artwork which forms the basis of this work, in March 2019 in south and south east Sweden.

Hundreds of small islands lie off the coast of south-east Sweden.
They usually consist of no more than rocky soil with shrubs and trees, surrounded by a collar of reeds.
And on this beautiful winter day, at sunrise the light plays a serenade on the reeds, accompanied by the wind.

Fotopentrito and Fotopentriti

In my collaboration with Karina Mosser, we started a new project: painting on a photograph.

This isn't a unique way of creating art, it has been done before.

But with the fluid fusion of our styles and materials, we are sure that a series of unique works of art will emerge.
We set out to find a word that would describe this medium well.

There is no existing word for painting on a photograph. So we composed two new words. We derived these from the words for 'painting' and 'photo' in the Esperanto language.

Thus arose Fotopentrito to denote the medium and a work of art painted on a photograph, and the word Fotopentriti to describe several works of art made in this way.

We will keep you update on our websites and on social media !

Below the first two of my artworks from the collection Infinite Sea to which Karina will add her unique style.
