Look

2015



A look into the future

 


Look was made in 2015 while Paalu attended business school in Copenhagen.

The outline of Look was drawn on a beach and later digitalized in his apartment.

He mainly used material from a musk ox hunting trip in Kangerlussuaq, where he took pictures of soil, lakes, mountains, and the moon.

 

It was in the making of ‘Look’ where he birthed one of the essential methods fundamental to his brand.

Paalu was painting ‘Look’ with plain colors on his computer, when he found the colors in need of texture.
To solve this, he blended pictures of Greenlandic soil with the initially boring coloring.

This fusion birthed a technique that Paalu has tried advancing ever since.

The mixture of materials gave his art a mystical character, leading people to ask how it was made.

He was not reluctant to share his discovery, so he rambled about musk oxen and told wild hunting stories, which people enjoyed listening to.

There he understood the value of usinghis photos forhis art.

 

Look was inspired by a vision.

The vision was deep and vivid with an intricate floral landscape.

He assumed an existence of Japanese art with similar characteristics, but searching ‘circular Japanese art’ on Google served him no good.

He had always been unskilled at drawing realistically, so he deemed himself unfit to realize his vision.

He tried anyway and failed with flying colors.

A vague outline was drawn, short of the intricacy and depth he imagined.

He needed education and experience to understand how depth and detail could be conjured successfully, but he was just an adolescent with a vivid imagination.

 

Yet it was an imagination powerful enough to neglect his technical boundaries, when he proceeded to explore the digital medium by manipulating his photos to bring forth the depth and detail he could not carry out on paper.

But it was more than photo manipulation, it was a new form of expression.

When he browsed his photos they evoked feelings and carried memories.

Memories then plastered to his work, partaking in a new experience.
