Essay
This work originates from the late period of creation of the great light and fire artist Otto Piene and illustrates his occupation with phenomena of the sky and the weather.The famous fire technique, which Piene masters with perfection, once more leads to an ever new and fascinating form of figuration, that plastically occupies a prominent spot in the center of the painting area. The force of nature becomes the main means of design: Through the fire's transforming energy, the color and the controlled coincidence the artist created a work characterized by concentrated force and poetic beauty, literally elementary.
