Agate Lielpetere - NFTs

1st DROP: Bruised and Confused
“Bruised and Confused” by Agate Lielpetere is a reflection of the maximalist thinking so often associated with the youth. As the capillary bursts and the blood layers under the skin gradients of all possible colors are created and can be observed changing on one’s skin. From deep purple shaped by the still hemoglobin-rich blood under the skin to slightly visible fading yellow-green. Each artwork is given the name of a real person – peer of the artist, person who wears the bruise – it serves as a reminder of how easily bruises can be impersonated.

Originally printed by hand in silkscreen using the CMYK four-color raster technique the artworks have been transformed into digital RGB moving images that amplify the colorfulness of the bruise.

Artist comments that these moving images are the bruise versions of lava lamps.
