Artist Patrick Tschudi chooses a totally different path to question the individual and the masses. He too uses photography as the initial material for his work, before transforming the photographs into highly abstract paintings. On closer examination, his vividly colored shapes and patterns reveal masses of people. The original images, taken from a bird’s eye view or directly above, are turned into reduced, pictogram-like paintings. A beach scene, for example, is evoked by parasols and other vacation accessories. The stretches of water and beach are also recognizable, but the people appear as typified protagonists. The black body parts are made of standardized pictograms. Heads become circular dots, the human extremities basic shapes have neither hands nor feet. The clothing is also reduced to bright monochrome fields of color.
