Fabian Oefner:Liquid Jewel
Fabian Oefner is a curious artist from Switzerland, who’s work moves between art and science. His latest collection of photography, called Liquid Jewel is an interesting experiment. He uses balloons covered in acrylic paint and air pressure to create unique shapes and colour combinations. The beautiful images you see are the result of a fast process that consumes within seconds. The images manage to capture that specific moment when the colours blend, a few milliseconds after popping the balloons with a needle.
“What I particularly love about the images is that if you look closely, you can see, how the individual shades start to mix with each other, blue and magenta becomes violet, red and yellow becomes orange.” As the air inside the balloon expands explosively, the paint is thrown in all directions. Like flowers frozen in time, the shapes and the details are uniquely beautiful and unrepeatable. The Liquid Jewel series continues his work of manipulating paint with different natural forces.
