Einige Beobachtungen über Wildblumen: Bienen-Ragwurz (Ophrys apifera) und Schachblume (Fritillaria meleagris) or Some considerations on wild flowers: Bee Orchid (Ophrys apifera) and Chess Flower (Fritillaria meleagris) is the result of the work in the studio, since I decided to prove a system of construction opposed to the one used in Einige Beobachtungen über Insekten: Langhornbiene (Eucera longicornis) or Some considerations on insects: Long-horned Bee (Eucera longicornis). In that work I used a substracting system of construction, in which from the constant presence of ten layers of felt in tones of gray, the felt of those zones in which the image did not require it, was “eliminated”. On the contrary, by means of the additive system of construction of this diptych –produced in twelve shades of red–, each module was made independently, adding the zones of color according to the presence (amount of surface) of each tone. This time, the images corresponded to a book of wild flowers, whose images (like in the previous mural) vanished –defocused– towards the first and last plane of the photography.
