'Homage to Ellsworth Kelly/ Folding a Chemex Filter', Tobias Berg, 2016
Acrylic on Canvas
4 canvases: 35 x 27 cm, 27 x 19 cm, 22 x 16 cm, 22 x 16 cm
This work was created partly by chance, when I placed a chemex filter onto a black surface. I found this to be an already made painting that should be transferred to a canvas. The folding of the filter then created new forms and shapes, resulting in this four part series. The connection to the oeuvre of Ellsworth Kelly is obvious and I would like to dedicate my work to this great painter, who passed away only a few months ago.
