387 Ways to Lose My Mind
A sprawling, multi-layered canvas of bold colors and warped forms, 387 Ways to Lose My Mind seemingly defies categorization. Filled with frenetic energy, it explodes into the viewer’s gaze, inviting them to dive into its chaotic depths. Each brushstroke is deliberate yet frenzied, creating the impression of motion and dynamism. At first glance, it appears to be a haphazard jumble of shapes and lines, but upon closer inspection, patterns reveal themselves, hinting at a hidden order beneath the madness. With its vibrant hues and intricate details, 387 Ways to Lose My Mind stands as a visual ode to the beauty of complexity and chaos.
387 Ways to Lose My Mind is an homage to Jackson Pollock’s iconic “Mural,” an abstract expressionist masterpiece that captures the raw energy and vitality of the mid-20th century. By remixing Pollock’s style and adding his own unique flair, Frank Bueltge has created an entirely new work of art that both pays tribute to its predecessor and transcends it. Bueltge’s use of big data and neural networks has allowed him to create a piece that blurs the line between the real and the imagined, giving rise to a visual universe that is truly mind-bending. Released today in the Whitney Museum of American Art, 387 Ways to Lose My Mind is sure to be one of the most talked-about pieces of the year.
