  • Blooming Art – Artistic Flower Design Series (2/22/2020)

    Blooming Art is a series of floral paraphrases that me and Petra Radnai made in the end of 2019.
    Every single picture that we choose to imitate we observed in many different ways.
    Petra reflected on the style of the original paintings during her work. She was using different type of compositions to bring extra additional meaning to each piece. She also chose the type of the flowers based on the personality of the characters she was imitating.
    I had three different focuses during the process: backgrounds, lighting and the postproduction. The goal was to create a context to each piece with the painted backgrounds. I was lighting each floral composition similarly as the recreated characters had on the paintings. Finally I edit the brightness, colors and the texture of the photographs in the most identical way as it was possible comparing to the original paintings.

     

    MICHELANGELO: THE CREATION OF ADAM



    Art history:
    The Creation Of Adam is a fresco painted by Michelangelo Buonarroti in 1509–1510 as part
    of the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling in Vatican City.
    It is an exemplary piece of Italian High Renaissance art.
    The left side of the fresco depicts Adam leaning on his elbow on the ground, while God is
    lying in the hands of floating angels on the right. The painting focuses on the moment of
    creation with a gap between the two fingers to mark that the act of creation is not a physical-
    material one as God brings the first human spirit to life from a state of unconsciousness and
    sleep.

    Floral design:
    Flower and arrangement:
    When creating the composition, we paid particular attention to Michelangelo’s style of
    painting, the spatial arrangement of God and Adam and represented the floating figure of God
    with a suspended composition. While selecting the flowers, we did not only consider colours,
    but the monumentality, aerial lightness, discipline and omnipotence of God as well. These
    traits are represented by thick peonies and Charles Darwin roses, loosely structured
    eucalyptuses and thorny, woody Mahonias. For the character of Adam, we selected smaller,
    thicker and simpler flowers mainly based on colour, therefore, we primarily used Dianthuses,
    bouquets of mini roses and Lisianthuses. We have chosen a Digitalis to reflect the grace and
    lightness of the two hands at the centre of the painting.
    Photo:
    Lighting:
    We wanted to depict the floating figure of God in sharp contrast with human Adam lying on
    the ground. Michelangelo paints the scene in an ethereal void with bright light shining from
    slightly above. To achieve a similar effect, we provided lighting for the flower arrangement
    slightly from above with two lamps positioned in the middle.
    Post-processing:
    The fresco is characterized by mild colours, strong contours and creamy, radiating light. We
    created this atmosphere by boosting vivid and bright tones, while slightly desaturating colours
    and reducing noise.

     

    FRA ANGELICO: THE VIRGIN OF THE ANNUNCIATION

     

    Art history:
    Fra Angelico is also known as the painter of Annunciations. This particular piece of art depicts
    the angel Gabriel and the Virgin Mary at the moment of the Annunciation. We wanted to
    outline the angel entering the building where the Virgin Mary is sitting. The composition
    recreates their posture and their location.

    Floral design:
    Flower and arrangement:
    Our main aim was to imitate the colours characterizing Fra Angelico’s painting style. The
    attention of the Virgin Mary and the angel towards each other is marked by the location and
    the angle of the flowers. We have selected soft flowers like garden roses, Lisianthuses and
    small-headed roses to reflect the gentle and sensitive nature of the figures. We marked the
    wing of the angel with a crane flower, which we also used to keep the composition in balance
    and to represent the kneeling leg of the angel entering the room. The Virgin Mary’s blue dress
    is made out of the radiant blue fruit of Viburnum and silver-leafed Begonias.
    Photo:
    Lighting: In Fra Angelico’s painting, light comes in from the left side behind the angel. We
    have lighted the arrangement with two constant lights from the left and brightened it from the
    other side to preserve the sunlit effect of the original painting.
    Post-processing:
    Despite clear contour lines, the painting is characterized by low contrasts. Mostly pastel
    colours create a gentle harmony. This atmosphere was recreated by desaturation, increasing
    sharpness and softening clarity and contrast during post-processing.

     

    JACQUES-LOUIS DAVID: MADAME RÉCAMIER

     

    Art history:
    Jacques Louis David (1748–1825) was the first significant painter of French classicism and
    he later became one of Napoleon’s favourites. His portrait of Madame Récamier with its
    captivating style and the vibrant, unique painting method of the background is an outstanding
    piece of art. Julie or Juliette Récamier (originally Jeanne-Françoise Julie Adélaïde Bernard)
    was a leading figure of early 19th century literary and political society.
    Juliette opened a salon as a meeting place for a select group of people.
    The beautiful young lady was surrounded by adorers. She was among the first ones to furnish
    her residence in an Etruscan style. She was wearing antique clothes at the time of the
    Directory contributing to the popularity of the antique style during imperial rule.
    Her salon played a significant role in the political-intellectual life of the era.
    Floral design:
    Flower and arrangement:
    Madame Recamier is represented by soft, gentle flowers resembling her character and
    graceful beauty, such as David Austin roses, Lisianthuses, Digitalises and Ranunculuses.
    The figure of the lying lady is outlined by a stretched-out composition. A textile material
    completes the arrangement to underline the association.
    Photo:
    Lighting:
    The light in the painting comes in from one point in the centre top. We used two lamps in the
    middle and we raised the stronger light source to achieve a similar effect for the arrangement.
    Post-processing:
    The brush technique in the painting is gentle at the figure of the Madame, but much stronger
    and rougher for the surroundings. This texture is marked by increased grain, while the
    gripping difference between light and shadow in the painting is recreated by the significantly
    increased contrast.

     

    ISAAC ISRAËLS: IN THE CAFÉ

     

    Art history:
    Isaac Israëlst (1865–1934) is considered to be one of the greatest figures of modern Dutch
    painting besides Van Gogh and Mondrian.
    He loved to submerge in the vibrant and colourful world of streets, clubs, music and dance
    cafés, fashion and the life of Amsterdam. His main aim was to capture the present moment
    quickly. In case of this café scene, we worked with the whole composition including the focus
    on the moment, the brush technique and the spectacular colour dynamics.
    Floral design:
    Flower and arrangement:
    When selecting the flowers and creating the arrangement, we mainly concentrated on the
    vibrant lights and small brush strokes characterizing the impressionist painting style. The
    swirling colours of the original painting are reflected by the flowers. The orange of the lady’s
    drink in the painting is marked by unique, strong yellow of Ranunculuses and Juliet roses.
    Photo:
    Lighting: The painting depicts the interiors of a room, where light comes in from the top left.
    We illuminated our arrangement the same way with a lamp and softly brightened the flowers
    from the other side. Light also penetrates the orange liquid in the glass, therefore, we let
    some natural light into the room to emphasise the orange flowers.
    Post-processing:
    Our aim was to showcase the bold brush strokes characterising impressionist artists, which
    are bright spots rather than contour lines. We slightly increased the contrast of the picture to
    accentuate these spots. At the same time we reduced noise and created a unique texture
    marked by soft grain.

     

    EDGAR DEGAS: STAR OF THE BALLET

     

     

    Art history:
    Degas loved to feature dancers in his paintings. Star of the Ballet portraying Rosita Maurit is a
    pastel created with monotyping. Monotypes are imprints of a drawing originally created on a
    copper or glass plate and then transferred to a sheet of paper by pressing the two surfaces
    together. Star of the Ballet was showcased on the third exhibition of the impressionists.
    The painting is realistic and supernatural at the same time. The playful lights and the original
    perspective contribute to the extraordinary effect. Behind the scenes dancers and a man are
    watching the prima ballerina. They are merely torsos without heads, the painting focuses on
    the ballet dancer, who graciously bows in front of the audience.
    Floral design:
    Flower and arrangement:
    When creating the flower arrangement, we wanted to reflect on the aerial lightness of Degas’
    ballet dancer. Therefore, we have chosen soft-petalled David Austin roses, Ranunculuses
    and Lisianthuses. The location of the flowers, the structure of the composition marks the
    charming and dynamic movements of the ballerina. Her gracious hand position is outlined by
    the arch of a hazel branch.
    Photo:
    Lighting: As a theatrical scene the composition is angled upwards, therefore, we took the
    photo from slightly above. It is illuminated from below, at the height of the imaginary stage.
    Two lamps are lighting the arrangement from the bottom right and we also brightened the
    flowers slightly.
    Post-processing: During post-processing, we desaturated the colours to create a softer,
    pastel effect and increased contrast and grain to achieve a texture resembling the painting.

     

    REMBRANDT H. VAN RIJN: THE ANATOMY LESSON OF DR. NICOLAES TULP

     

    Art history:
    In the 17th century, anatomy lectures were open door events attended by doctors, medical
    students and other visitors. The painting probably depicts a public autopsy organized on 31
    January 1632 and conducted by Dr Nicolaes Tulp, the anatomist of Amsterdam. The city
    permitted only one public autopsy per year for which they used the body of an executed
    criminal.
    Rembrandt was commissioned by the Guild of Surgeons in Amsterdam to capture the event
    and every figure in the painting paid a fee to the artist to be featured in the masterpiece.

    Floral design:
    Flower and arrangement:
    We tried to capture the play of lights and shadows characteristic of Rembrandt, while creating
    the flower arrangement. We stuck the flowers in a dark stone bowl and put the composition in
    front of a dark background. The dead body in the centre of the painting is marked by thick-
    blossomed cream and white roses, which create a homogenous, united structure close to
    each other. We only used white flowers for the figures observing the dead body:
    Ranunculuses in the foreground and smaller-headed Lisianthuses for the background. The
    collars of the doctors are outlined by Kalanchoes.
    Photo:
    Lighting: We recreated the distinctive lighting painted by Rembrandt. The main light source
    and the brightening was set based on the original, while we also tried to reflect on the soft,
    slightly hazy atmosphere, so we utilized incense-burners to thicken the air and create unique
    lighting conditions.
    Post-processing:
    We focused on Rembrandt’s subtle and soft brush technique and the marked difference
    between lights and shadows. We increased contrast and softened the picture, while reducing
    clarity.

     

    MICHELANGELO MERISI DA CARAVAGGIO: SAINT MATTHEW AND THE ANGEL

     

     

    Art history:
    In 1599, Caravaggio received his first significant Church commission thanks to Del Monte’s
    support. He was invited to paint the chapters of Saint Matthew’s life for the Contarelli Chapel
    at the Church of San Luigi dei Francesi. The venture started on the wrong foot as the first
    version of Saint Matthew and the Angel was not accepted by the client. They condemned
    Caravaggio for painting the saint as an illiterate peasant and they were most likely right as
    Saint Matthew was originally a tax collector, who probably could read and write. But the next
    four paintings were so successful that Caravaggio became one of the most popular painters
    of Rome overnight.
    Floral design:
    Flower and arrangement:
    We concentrated on Caravaggio’s unique choice of colours and the reflection of lights. We
    used vivid orange and claret flowers for Matthew’s clothes, such as Lisianthuses, roses and
    Dianthuses. We outlined the evangelist on his knees by the arch and two levels of the
    arrangement. The aerial figure of the angel is marked with a suspended composition. The
    floating apparition is recreated with light, soft roses and faint Dianthuses.
    Photo:
    Lighting: In Caravaggio’s paintings light and dark are in bold, dramatic contrast with each
    other creating an effect called chiaroscuro. When we set the lighting for the arrangement, we
    aimed at recreating this atmosphere. We utilized a light source at the top and slightly
    brightened from the front. The orange glimmer of the original painting is evoked by the
    candles in the background.
    Post-processing:
    We wanted to accentuate the dramatic effect by increasing contrast, deepening shadows and
    strengthening highlights. We also increased grain to mark Caravaggio’s brush technique.

  • Kriszti & Andris – Slovenian Engagement Session (6/27/2019)

    Kriszti and Andris asked me to shoot their engagement session in Slovenia. Last year I was lucky to photograph at Lake Bohinj a magical elopement story already so I was very excited about their plan.
    We were lucky enough to observe and capture a breathtaking phenomenon after a huge storm.
    Kriszti and Andris were just as inspired by the weather as I was. This brought a lot of excitment and feeling into this photo session and made it absolutely special.
    Andris is the manager and the guitarist of a popular hungarian band, The Biebers. Therefore his lifestyle is very intense and Kriszti is the one who always helps him, inspires him and support him. They know each other since high school so they basically grow up together. The way how they live and work can be an example to us all.
