The „Paint Action“ Cycle consists of three different series: Black Hole, Liquid Jewel and Orchid. In this cycle, Oefner explored the possibilities of modeling paint by natural forces. Inspired by a photograph of Jackson Pollock at work, it was the artist`s ambition to capture the fleeting moment of paint in motion, ultimately making the process of creation tangible through a photograph. Although the images are made with different forces such as centrifugal force, pneumatics or gravity, they all display structures of ephemeral beauty, lasting only for a couple of milliseconds.
