THE POWER OF ART IN CRISIS
Performancephotography by Dirk Baumanns
ART FOR YOUR PLACE TO BE NO.1
This performance photography offers an intensification of perception through the sensory, haptic handling of both the motif of the picture and the colouring.
Between background and model the physiological characteristics of the viewing apparatus creates a flickering and relief-like effect so special for these pictures.
Printed on Hahnemühlen fine art paper the very limited artworks show brilliant colours in precise shape on a sublime surface.
The intense colours not only beautify the hotspots in your place to be. The comical masked figures are gaining some humor in a depressing global crisis of self-isolation. They can also act as a reminder in the hallway before leaving the house to protect others with your mask and stop spreading the virus.

I am fighting more than 16 years as an activist performance artist and painter in the field of art and on the streets against environmental pollution and climatechange.
In 2011 I started to make paintings with clear plastic films on top of oilcolour in a recycling process. Only the color still has the shiny surface and wrinkles that are so typical of plastic film and reinvented oil painting. My earliest work developed more into upcycling varying plastic materials in combination with oil colour.
Now I also collect and clean up different plastic waste for my paintings. So you will find plastic on my paintings for 500 YEARS SAFE! ;)
The knowledge of the 21st century is that everything is connected. The north with the south, the east with the west and vice versa. We all share one planet. My conclusion as a longtime environmental artist is: My gallery is the earth!
So in 2020 I decided to sell my paintings over this online shop donating half of all proceeds to organisations and projects that work against pollution and for human rights.
