Painting with the colors of light - a new art movement.


Attention, the following artwork is not digital art! The DNA of Light is a collaboration between Paul Heinrich Neuhorst, a highly skilled lighting designer and artist, and Ilka Henkel, a versatile artist and technical consultant with an impressive international exhibition portfolio. The dynamic duo venture into a realm of art that defies conventional categorisation. "The Painting with the colors of light" challenges the preconceived notion that art consists of computer-generated images. Instead, the essence of light is utilised by breaking it down into its spectral components, much like a prism or a rainbow. The artistic process mirrors that of traditional painting, with the mixing of the coloured light components resembling the mixing of paint on a palette. Adjusting the intensity of red, blue, green and their combinations becomes a choreography of colour tones, similar to a choreographer staging a dance. The subsequent creation of sculptures, backdrops and decorations further enriches the narrative. These elements are then illuminated by the carefully composed coloured light components. The results of this intricate process are visually stunning images of a brilliance that defies convention. The interplay of colour, light, reflection and mirroring forms a mesmerising symphony. "The Painting with the colors of light" represents an art form that is completely original, innovative and deeply complex. Here, light is not just a tool, but an essential medium that equals the artist's craftsmanship. It stages a dance of colours and light contrasts, a choreography of visual splendour. Although this art form is firmly rooted in the contemporary abstract and playful world, it retains a connection to reality through its study of nature.
