The Story

“Volatile Curtains”, the colours floating in this image might bring one to think of fire. The purple and red combination of colours are streaming upwards creating a sense of direction in the image. The abstract motif, however, can open up to many different interpretations or views on what it actually depict. As much as it may resemble fire, or smoke, it also evokes a textured feel. You almost want to reach out and touch it, and see what it may feel like.

The abstract motif, however, can open up to many different interpretations or views on what it actually depict. As much as it may resemble fire, or smoke, it also evokes a textured feel. You almost want to reach out and touch it, and see what it may feel like.

This image is not under the category of still life, yet the urge to ask the question of texture is central and ties this piece to the history of art.

About Heidi Westum

Heidi is a member of the highly curated 1X fine arts photography community. She primarily shoots macro, a method of extreme close-up, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size. While macro photographers often focus on the detailed textures of insect and flowers, amateur photographer Heidi Westum deviates from the norm to take us instead on simpler yet more structured macroscopic journey. She does this by fusing photography with oil painting by carefully arranging tiny drops of oil on an illuminated canvas of water.
