Without colour, but not colourless: Firework Studies by Pierre Le Hors.

What happens if you drain the colour from fireworks? The sounds certainly don’t change. Pierre Le Hors decided to go with B&W sketches for his 'Firework Studies' and left them to their own abstract nature. The garish textures against a black background can now be anything they want: dandelions, galactic fog or palm tree tops.

To some, fireworks have the same kitsch factor as sunsets. It may be fascinating when experienced live in person, wonderful and a song of colours. But the picture of it turns the moment into a sentimental, pathetic and unbearably inelegant instant.

Yet, without the colours' influence and by decontextualising the photographs from specific moments, locations or occasions, the light effects turn into self-contained visual sequences - full of magic.

The artist will be exhibiting his works until the 10th of February 2011 in New York. On top of this, Hassla Books will publish them as a limited edition book.
