these otherworldly photographs by texas-based artist mark lovejoy seem to be some molten material from a candy factory; swirling pastel pinks, hot reds and baby blues fold and ripple like stretched taffy before it hardens.
astonishingly, these images are actually of spilled ink, captured at a distinct moment when the liquified chroma overlaps itself, creases and contorts. each result, posted by lovejoy daily on his website, are completely hypnotizing, offering a mesmerizing look at the properties of paint and its unusual movement within the frame. huge sheets of variously hued pigments move as fluidly as fabric, looking like a textile blowing in the wind.
