Artwork Title: Symbiosis
Karin Kuhlmann 2002
Medium: Digital Art
Art Style: Abstract Art, Expressionism
The notion of symbiosis describes a very close form of relation between two dissimilar natures, useful and necessary for both and leading to a permanent legal partnership. Accordingly the abstract digital painting "Symbiosis" is an attempt to describe and illustrate a lifelong partnership between two human beings like man and wife.
Series: Poetic Lyrical Contemplations.
I worked on this series since 2000 to capture moments, moods and memories. The artwork “Symbiosis” is based on fractal flames, done with KPT5 FraxPlorer and artistically edited with Adobe Photoshop. The focus of these digital creations are color, subjective perceptions and emotions. An outstanding feature of this series in abstract expressionist style is the high translucency and the painterly quality of the images.
The notion of symbiosis describes a very close form of relation
between two dissimilar natures, useful and necessary for both and leading to a permanent legal partnership. Accordingly the abstract digital painting "Symbiosis" is an attempt to describe and
illustrate a lifelong partnership between two human beings like man and wife. I used two different abstract forms to realize this idea. The one in the background shows geometric figures like triangles,
overlapping polygons and straight clear lines. The second form is round and fluent. The predominant colors are reds and yellows. The two forms are blended together without a visibly dividing line between
it. The cool, objective colors and forms of the background are blended with the warm, vibrant colors and forms of the foreground. The fine painterly quality of the image, the delicate, finely textured
transparency and bright, soft tuned color space, an outstanding feature of all of my abstract art work has been achieved through intensive artistic editing with Photoshop. The abstract expressionist
painting "Symbiosis" belongs to the abstract art series
"Love, Faith and Despair from 2002/2003.
“Symbiosis” was the cover illustration for IEEE Computer Graphics and
Applications Magazine (published by IEEE Computer Society (USA)) from Nov./Dez. 2005.
