“The Tree hugging is over”  is an ongoing series which, so far, explored various mountainous regions of western Austria  & eastern Switzerland.

The Tree-Markers indicate a Land Owner’s property and trees thereof, by using various colours & signage.  These trees are meant to be cut down for wood & environmental  restoration-, as well as commercial purposes.

Markers and colours used are meant to be seen! The more intense & contrary a colour is, the greater the effect of the contrast to the corresponding backgrounds.

The images exhibited are part of a larger group of images of different colour groups. They have been photographed with ordinary negative film-material, creating a beautiful grain & colours.

‘Frame Sculptures’  is an ongoing series of works whereof different thread-materials, including natural as well as inorganic fibres, are applied onto metal frames which are equipped with fine-thread machine-bolts, variable in number, length and diameter. Each frame is individual in terms of size, shape and surface-finishing. Besides some minor basic colour-corrections, these works are to be considered 100% analog.

This series exhibits nine out of fourteen patterns from the series ‘Frame Sculptures – Body Scans’. ‘Body Scans’ is one of the by-products of the series Frame Sculptures (http://marclins.com/art).

By projecting the photographs onto bare skin, special effects are created through the various patterns on a 3D-surface, such as in this case, the female body.

The intention wasn’t to produce pictures of ever so perfect models, but to rather focus on the visual impact, in addition to underlining the beauty and imperfection to be found simultaneously with any human body.

‘Frame Sculptures’  is an ongoing series of works whereof different thread-material, including natural as well as inorganic fiber, is applied onto metal frames, equipped with fine-thread machine-bolts, variable in number, length and diameter. Each frame is individual in terms of size, shape and surface-finishing.

The various color codes, partly being used like ‘positive negative’ light sources, and the image-crops are merely a visual accompaniment.  Besides some minor basic color-corrections, these works are to be considered 100% analog.

This series exhibits six out of twelve patterns from the ‘Frame Sculptures – Series 3’
