Tell me!!! by Emy Maike
“In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.” - Alice Walker
Emy Maike has called abstract colors of thought Imitation, because in the face of an ever faster and more rational world she believes unswervingly in man's actual striving for harmony and beauty.
With her dynamically and expressionistically characterized paintings, she intends to transport the viewer into a pleasant world of "good" thoughts.
"The experience of abstract Imitation I have gained in the past years are playful abstracting and experimental images of reality. My goals are to explore all photographic possibilities, namely the effect of the interplay of aperture, light, and shutter speed as well as the intentional movement of the camera or the subject up to the classical alienation by modern image processing."
