I’m in love with this gif. Everything about it. The rain drizzling. The candle flickering. The colors. I love it.
Andre Petterson Chaotic Brushstrokes Signify Movement
Mixed media artist Andre Petterson makes us believe in the beauty of chaos. His photography-based pieces captures the essence of time and movement all by his carefully placed brushstrokes. Influenced by music, Petterson creates works that seem to have a natural rhythm about them. It’s almost as if you can hear the various sounds emanating from his pieces.
The Vancouver, Canada-based artist starts with photographic prints of objects, like sewing machines and typewriters, and then overlays his brushstrokes until he’s made something that has a sense of movement. Mesmerizing, to say the least.
