The Rainbow of Darkness

Black. Weird. Gloomy. Silent. Powerful.

The harsh beauty of the volcanic landscapes.

For many people too gloomy to fully admire it. For others,  too astonishing to forget.

.

Lanzarote, the island of the volcanic origin was born like Fenix through fiery eruptions and ‘ashes’ of dark solidified lava streams. Oddly placed between Africa, Europe, surrounded by the Atlantic ocean, with its unique light, minimalistic approach to architecture and life in general. Weirdly astonishing with its extravagant rock formations and unique flora.

I travelled over  1/4 of our globe, but this island was different from what I have seen so far. During my first visit in November 2017  I was so much pleased by its beauty that already bought a  ticket to come back there, while still being in the spot. Not surprising that Lanzarote also became the subject of my current artworks.

The volcanic scenery reminds me of the power of nature and made me feel like I was on a different, dark planet, where the meditatively huge, black, empty and silent parts of the land are spread out for miles.

As Japanese visioner Yohji Yamamoto said about black:

“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy – but mysterious. But above all black says this: “I don’t bother you – don’t bother me”.”

And that’s how I felt there. Peacefully rough. Mysteriously distant.

Below I present a few photos taken during my walks on Lanzarote island in winter 2017/2018.
