Carina Chitsaz-Shoshtary: ‘The starting point for all the pieces of this series is colour: Paint itself is the main material and colour the most significant visual component. I collect thick colour sheets from a graffiti wall in Munich. By dividing the material into fine layers, fragments of former graffiti appear again- revealing surfaces that resemble ancient frescoes. Here I find all the colour compositions, gradations and chroma I could picture only in my most fertile imagination. In this abundance of colour I discover the eruption of a volcano or the dark and light contours of a mountain chain in the sunrise. The forms are emerging from these images.’
