I have been photographing the sky over Frankfurt from the same location in the period of the 13th to 27th of March of each year starting in 2010. Each photograph was transformed into an abstract gradient using self-selected parameters in Photoshop after it had been taken.
The data gained in this process was then translated into acrylic paint on canvas, with bands of paint representing the individual days arranged in chronological order from left to right.
The fifth painting of this kind was done in 2014, as you see in the photo which was taken in a show ‚drueber drunter, 2014‘. This project is still ongoing each year.
