Colorama Paradise

Manuel Fernández
Málaga
1977


The series explores the relationship between painting and photography to investigate the mechanisms of visual perception.

The frames are part of the work, turning their decorative quality in a functional element for the activation of the parts.

Spectrum gradient color panels in the field of photography that we see in digital editing tools, take three-dimensional physical form by painting the frames, now the color of the image is where we should find the decoration and image that should carry the color comes in black and white.

The photographs were taken in the botanical garden of La Concepcion in Malaga, built around 1855 by the Marquis of Loring.

It is an English style landscape garden, one of the few gardens with subtropical plants that exist in Europe, which housed some of the species that today have become extinct in their original places.
