... and here is my top topic for the 15th week of 2024 artistically implemented. New every Sunday.

I had actually already prepared a different topic for this week, but with Iran's attack on Israel last night, I believe we have reached a turning point in the Middle East conflict. The signs point to war. That is madness. But I am not giving up on my dream of a peaceful world.

Will the war plunge the region/the world into chaos? Or is there still hope? Will evil (war) destroy beauty (life, freedom, peace) or can the bad still be averted?

I expressed this conflict between reality and hope in the form of a flower against a dark background. The depth of field makes the whole thing appear like an explosion or a suction. The beige tone used is reminiscent of sand and thus of a desert region. The green color used is intended to create hope (like the flower as a whole).

I see 2 possible interpretations of the picture:

On the one hand, the beautiful/the good/the human in the form of the flower is overshadowed or possibly destroyed by the war.
On the other hand, there is hope that reason will prevail, that good will emerge from the chaos and that a full-scale war will not break out.

Only the future will show which interpretation of the picture will come into play at which time.

I just hope so much that the picture never has to be interpreted as a grave arrangement.

This picture is part of my weekly ARTblog on Instagram , in which I discuss current topics from the past week that are close to my heart. I make no claim to have the "ultimate, correct opinion" but simply present my view in artistic form.

Image generation/creation using artificial intelligence according to my specifications. Further processing using Photoshop.

a) Printing on high-quality aluminium composite (various sizes).
Thanks to the latest generation of UV direct printing with 7 colors including "light colors", the matt surface of the aluminum composite shines in absolutely rich colors and fine details are displayed in high resolution down to the last detail. The pictures are provided with a pre-assembled profile suspension and have a distance of approx. 1 cm from the wall. This gives your wall picture a floating look.

Treatment & Care

The print is applied with high quality ink on high quality art paper. To ensure longevity, the image should be protected from direct sunlight.

It is recommended that you only touch the pictures with gloves.

Only pictures made of acrylic glass can be cleaned with a clean, damp cloth without pressure.

Never expose unprotected prints to water. This destroys the surface.
