Paint Strokes in The Sands of Time

Using only glass and sand as an allegory to the hourglass, photographer David Wilman and art director Begoña Toledo captured in this series, the literal present while showing a hint of the past and suggesting the future.

As with the sand clock, the duo sees the infinitesimally small point of the present as it sits on top of the past, with the weighty tomes of the future towering above it.

Thinking of abstract painting as a timeless form of art, they introduce color in this series as vibrations, just as Kandinsky understood color, in the form of paint strokes, setting color in motion, layering in space as abstract forms captured in the moment.

Art defies the sense of time by encapsulating an emotion that will live eternally through its paint strokes in the sands of time.
