MODERN ART PHOTOGRAPHY
This modern art image is a digital photograph taken in 2011. It is part of
a series of texturologies taken in an urban mileau.
The 'prima materia' or 'primal matter' is a term from alchemy. The search
for the prima materia was one of the goals of many alchemists.
This photo seems to symbolize sulphur, arsenic and mercury, the three
primary elements in ancient alchemy.
