3D photos of the artworks

01_066_naturaleza_muerta_-_detalle.jpg The Madrid photographer Javier González saw at friends the calendar with my latest artworks of the past year. My friends enthused about the artworks and highlighted the three-dimensional effect, which they liked so much at my works. Javier, a specialist for 3D photography searched contacting me, to find out whether it is possible to enforce the 3D effect at the photos by using a better photographic technique.

There are several possibilities and one of these makes it necessary to use eyeglasses with red and green lenses. We decided to use the 2-photos-technique, where one photo is made with the frontal illumination and a second photo is made with a lateral illumination to work out the shadows of the objects.

Acrylic paint on canvas

Additionally acrylic painting in the basic colours blue, red, yellow, green plus white and black as well as palette knives and paintbrushes.

095_banistas.jpg The re-interpretation of works of art is by no means a new concept. All the great painters have painted their "own" bathers using inspiration from one of the greats. Take Sandro Botticelli, Peter Paul Rubens and Antonio Canova, for example: all these artists have produced incredible versions of "The three graces" in their own unique styles. Even in the music industry, cover versions have seen a very similar tradition; how many versions of ... more

Art education at a Munich primary school

project_schule_01.jpg The art of working with objects and seeing them in a new light is something that really appeals to children. It would often be the children viewing my creations that were able to name the component objects without a second thought, sometimes taking mischievous delight in doing so. A haircut made of a brush here, a straw-hat face there. Children's imaginations are really free to run wild once their ability to look at objects in a new way has been awakened. ... more
