A work of flower portraits revealing the healing power of nature and music.
Beate Walden expresses classical music compositions and the fibonacci sequence by representing them in this series of handworked photographs interpreting images of various flowers.
As a violinist in the first 40 years of her life, Beate has a personal experience with these musical compositions.
Presented on photo paper, under acrylic glass and mounted on aluminum, these visual artworks speak of multiple dimensions. Through the hand applied onlay of silver paint, the dimension of space is introduced. In the repeating dotted patterns, the rhythmic codes of the musical themes are revealed. The melody line of the music repeats itself in the rhythmic, flowing patterns of paint, each time slightly different.
Never can the violinist play a line exactly the same again. Never can the dotted lines be the same. A reminder that life can seem the same from moment to moment, yet it never is. Invention and creation forever flowing.
And as the flower is born, has its life and dies, so does the music in its performance have a beginning, a middle and an end. So do we as human beings.
Space and all life has a resonance. The earth resonates in D-Flat. Change is inevitable permanent reality.
