Flower Still Life with Butterflies
About the Work
The video loop FLOWER STILL LIFE WITH BUTTERFLIES is based on a floral painting by Rachel Ruysch that was obtained from an art copy manufacturer's data archive. The reference image is chosen at random by a computer and covered with a 3D-generated paint splash. A splash is an inscription gesture in a piece of art that corresponds to the artist's signature.
In his work, Christian Holze combines various artistic categories into hybrids: sculpture, painting, 3D processing and installation. For him, exploring and dissolving these categories is just as essential as the fusion of analog and digital working practices.
