Gursky Grad

A couple of my studio associates introduced me recently to Andreas Gursky. I was leafing through the a book of his work produced in conjunction with a Düsseldorf show and I saw an image where he had photographed a work by Jackson Pollock.

At that moment, I knew I had to build it in vectors and gradients. The horizontal lines were so mathematical and an incredible contrast to Pollock's work. Here's what I did:

It seems a bit Rothko-esque, but the process felt nice and a little transcendental. I should use Processing or something to develop the Pollock painting technique.

With apologies to everyone.
