“Inner Development”

Here artistic intent and unexpected influences merge. This work, originally intended as a print of a bare foot in dried and cracked paint, took a fascinating turn.

A vibrant palette of green and yellow tones, infused with traces of nature. It wasn't my hand, but beetles that found their way unnoticed that left their mark here. The original vision has been reinterpreted by nature, and the beetles' damage is now a powerful symbol of change and unpredictability.

In this unexpected collaboration I find an organic metaphor for metamorphosis and change. The traces of the beetle metamorphosis, as unintentional symbolism, tells a story of transformation and the unstoppable passage of time. Art and nature merge into a unique aesthetic fusion of planned creativity and spontaneous influences.

I consciously decided against the original footprint in order to preserve the traces of the beetles. This was not a defeat, but a choice that intensified the dialogue between art and chance. The work thus becomes a timeless testimony to the beauty that arises from the symbiosis of human creativity and the power of nature.

In ‘Inner Development’ we see, how the creative process goes beyond the boundaries of intention. The unintended elements are not mistakes but sources of inspiration. This work invites you to discover the beauty in the unexpected and experience the transformative power of art.

The painting is a 20cm x 20cm egg tempera on canvas. The beetles are drugstore beetles (Stegobium paniceum). These have gone through all stages of development inside the dried paint. I collected them and cleaned the painting. It was then disinfected in the oven and prepared with linseed oil varnish. What remains is a detailed landscape that tells a colorful story of life.

I allow the pain and analyze. Vulnerability is not weakness. No compensation/repression through work, alcohol, drugs or sex. I think about how I myself worked towards the end of the relationship in order to learn from it for the future. I know that 90 percent of all justifications are just pretexts and in reality there is almost always another problem causing it. I know I can't control everything. I know that people are not static, but that certain situations can promote toxic behavior patterns (self-protection). That's why I have no problem with entering into a binding relationship again afterwards. The strength to face your feelings, process what you've experienced and look forward gives me power - over myself. That's why I don't listen to people who advise me to stop thinking about it. I don't live in the past just because I face it. On the contrary: I live in the present, where it is a burden, and work on my future - without this burden.

What could that be? A witch?

I made the image using Photoshop and the Firefly AI model. I worked on it for several hours. At first I had only unintentionally generated the head. Then I expanded the area step by step and generated new content using magic spells.

I went hiking in the Andes again.

No, I wasn't. I just used Photoshop.๐Ÿคช

More specifically, the generative AI fill of the latest beta. In the past, you had to laboriously select the motif, research the right background image, consider copyrights, insert it, edit the edges and make many adjustments. Today, all you need is a click and a text prompt. What do you think? ๐Ÿค”

Now anyone can fake just about anything with ease. Admittedly, a closer look reveals a few discrepancies, but only a few look closely. Influencers no longer need to travel and dating profiles can be so much more interesting! On the other hand, if you want to be creative, a lot of work is saved and you can invest more time in other things. Also, almost everyone is already changing their "landscape" anyway, which others would call a beautiful face (wrinkles are natural and beautiful!).๐Ÿ˜‰

Image 1 was created with the input "Mountain hike in the Andes", Image 2 "Landscape of the 2009 film Land of the Lost", Image 3 "Amazon River" and Image 4 is the original (in my neighborhood).

Authenticity is important to me, which is why I always mention content manipulation or generated representations. Except for the Easter eggs, of course, but nobody discovers them anyway.๐Ÿ˜„

Maybe I should devote myself more to classical painting again. It's not that easy to fake and you still have to do something.๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽจ

I like experimenting with Dall-E, an artificial intelligence that generates images based on input.๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป

Actually, I wanted a completely different motif, namely that of a Pachnoda marginata (sun beetle). At least it created Scarab Beetles, so it didn't go completely off plan.๐Ÿ˜„

An AI has no intentions of its own, it only implements commands according to learned patterns. Without consciousness, without longing, an AI can never create art. But I do not deny that you can create art using AI.

However, I only imagine beautiful images and ask my virtual friend to create them. And I get beautiful and inspiring pictures, don't you think?๐Ÿ˜Š

Nothing is as constant as eternal change. Perfection is a state that cannot be attained, but must be striven for. Form follows function.

Back then I loved to create such compositions with Photoshop. There are many more like this, for example of me as a robot, a lizard and a naked mole rat on space vacation. But I don't think I'll show you. Better let your imagination run wild.๐Ÿ˜‹
