Café-Terrasse – Budapest – HIP Work

Café-Terrasse
Café in Budapest

Part of my HIP series – for Hypertonal Impressionistic Painting – this quaint café in Budapest.

Alice in Berlin – HIP Collection

Alice in Berlin
More appropriately – Alice in Berlinland

A painting started in 2015 and more or less finished in 2018 – Berlin in Winter impression, enhanced because the reality wasn’t nearly as interesting as this ;o)

Szimpla Kert – Animated Image

Szimpla Kert
One small area on the first floor of Szimpla Kert, the Budapest Ruin Bar

My own particular, very subjective and surrealistic take on the Szimpla Kert ruin bar in Budapest. When I went there, it was love at first sight. This is one small area on the first floor of the romkocsma, (means ruin pub in Hungarian), located in the Jewish Quarter of Budapest.

Obviously a day capture. The night scene here is a different beast. The animations (quite a few if you look closely) represent how I see that place. I would definitely have made this pub my personal hangout if I lived in Budapest!

Wandering in the Old Jewish Quarter – at least an approximation of it.

Red flowers at dusk – Take 2

Played around a little bit on this new take from my Nafplio painting.

First snow at the pub

An animation from a painting of the Yew Tree, a pub in Alresford, Hampshire, in southwest England which was a very nice find!

Part of my ongoing preparation for the Art + Photo exhibition I will be participating in with Georges Dutil and David Morris, at the Atelier/Galerie Marc Gosselin, in Montreal, 17-26.05. 2018. #Montrealexhibition, #art#photo#TRIAGE#exhibition

Fire dish in Warsaw

This is part of my ongoing preparation for the Art + Photo exhibition I will be participating in with Georges Dutil and David Morris, at the Atelier/Galerie Marc Gosselin, in Montreal, May 17 to 26, 2018.

First one is a MP4, better quality but you have to set your player to loop for the effect to last more than 6 seconds – second one is an animated gif, which loops on its own, but is not as high def as the MP4.

From an original painting I created after a walkabout in Warsaw some years back. Time flies!

An animated piece reaches out to you, giving an illusion of experience that much closer to having been there. Of course, I still prefer the painting, which I’ll eventually publish here. In the meantime, warm yourselves by the fire in Warsaw’s Old Town.

Exhibition coming!

I’m glad to announce I will be part of an upcoming Art+Photo exhibition with two artist-colleagues – the picture has all the details you need for now. All three of us are very happy to work together again, and excited to prepare all kinds of fun things for this event.

More to come soon.

Animated gif from 2 of my paintings

An animated gif of 2 of my digital paintings, merged to create this spoof of exhaut fumes from Berlin’s U6 tram spilling outside of the photograph in an English pub.

At dusk, Nafplio, Greece – Animated gif study

Animated gif built from a small courtyard I photographed in Nafplio, Greece, in 2016.  The red of the flowers bursts out in the fading daylight, almost as if the flowers were luminous.
