How to start

It is a prerequisite for the use of ImageDivider on a Mac that you prepare your pictures in an image processing programme, such as e.g. Photopea.

See how you do that in this video tutorial:

Try Christian Skeel’s selected “masks”

Instead of drawing you own mask, you may experiment with some of the logarithmic masks chosen by Christian Skeel. In addition, he has generously made some of his own works available for your experiments. Use the link below to download one of the reproductions, and transform one of his expressive, partly figurative paintings into your own geometrical-abstract picture.

Thus you are encouraged to notice the differences between the final results and observe what happens when your starting point is 1) a private snapshot and 2) a work of art in which colours, composition, and structures have already been defined.

The works were created during the last 10 to 20 years and are untitled, as they have not yet been exhibited.

Once you have created a picture that you would like to share with Esbjerg Art Museum, you can do so from this web page:

About Christian Skeel

Christian Skeel works in the cross-field between e.g. photography and abstraction. In several works he has twisted and morphed photographic renderings of the surrounding world in such a way that what we thought we knew has been partly dissolved into new and surprising expressions. This is an example of the experimental artistic praxis into which My Museum offers an insight.

Christian Skeel has exhibited at Esbjerg Art Museum several times, and he is represented in our collection with a number of important works, created in cooperation with his artistic partner of many years, Morten Skriver. Among the works are the popular scent installation The Garden of Wittgenstein, the large interactive work Split Second, and the beautiful, wondrous water temple Drops Falling into Water.
