My smallest artwork, my first ACEO’s

Primordial Sounds, ACEO's

Primordial Sounds, ACEO’s

My smallest artwork is my first ACEO’S (Art Cards, Editions and Originals), a commission for an art collector from Portugal, Antonio Ramalho. It’s entitled ”Primordial Sounds”, oil on cardboard, 6,4×8,9 cm.

I told to my new art collector that maybe this will be the first and the last ACEO’s, because it’s really very difficult to create such a small work and in the same time to be representative for my art. The portrait inside the composition is 4,5×4,5 cm!

Antonio sent me a small text with his own interpretation of my artwork. I love it and I hope my readers will enjoy it, too. As an artist it’s very moving to recieve such a special feedback from the worldwide art collectors. They are very cultivated and they really love the collected works and the artists.

”Dear Constantin,

In your i “read” an initiation moment of the boy, that reaches a maturity celebration. You put it inside a square, regarding the individual construction.

The square is surrounded by triangles that represent the movements and outside influences on the individual.

The red one may represent the transformations and future struggles. Existing symbols seem to imply that the changes are often made in isolation and suffered.

The yellow (gold) it seems to open the door to growth, in a world of chaos.

Green may represent a hard growth, because the symbol is inverted.

At last the violet. Perhaps future memories and the participation on the earth growth.

Kind regards

Antonio Ramalho”
