Iridescent Oil

14th September 2016

Artist Fabian Oefner explores iridescence with a series of photographs that is simply mesmerising. We have all seen a bit of car oil in a puddle gleaming with rainbow colours, but Fabian took this accidental event and has turned it into art. He used a syringe to add small droplets of oil to water in a black reservoir and allowed the oil to expand into these beautiful forms. They resemble the human eye, or a galaxy far, far away.

He then photographs these mesmeric shapes. Hundreds of images were distilled to just 10, and what a collection. Like worlds within worlds Fabian’s work captivates us.
