The Breathing Pictures
Breathing is life. Every single cell in our body needs oxygen to produce energy.
Exhaling transports toxins and waste products out of our body.
There exists a strong connection between breathing and our mental state. Within the natural instinct to fight our fears, control our thoughts, and to arrive at a deeper state of inner contemplation, conscious breathing plays a monumental part in this process.
These breathing pictures serve as a contrast to the hectic visual culture that surrounds us.
The paintings radiate grace, beauty and tranquility. They act as an invitation to relax, to breathe, and to experience our inner meditations.

The Breathing Pictures are an innovative method of reminding employees, clients or guests of the importance of conscious breathing..

A breathing picture is like a mentor that reminds you to breathe consciously in a calming pattern.

“Swiss artist Stan Adard has pioneered an entirely new artistic genre: stunning digital images, called Breathing Pictures that incorporate movement as a fourth dimensional element to offer an immersive and dynamic visual experience to the viewer. The work is comprised of flowing lines, vivid colors, and amorphous forms: all compositional elements are drawn together to create a sense of harmony, balance, and otherworldly atmosphere.
Add to this movement, whereby the image literally breathes in a rhythmic, calming cadence, and the art is transformed into a spiritual mentor, reminding the viewer of the profound importance of mindfulness to experience the outer and inner world.“ ARTisSpectrum, 2017/36
