In Plain Sight - One - Martin Lukas Ostachowski
Acrylics on round wood panel
Edition of 1

Artwork Description

In Plain Sight is a new painting series exploring the fourth Bitcoin halving in 2024. The painting consists of four carefully placed building blocks, each halved in size in reference to Bitcoin’s fourth halving at block height 840,000 in April 2024. Using these building blocks, the parameters, dates, and values of the four halvings are embedded in the geometric shapes of the painting.

Artist Martin Lukas Ostachowski employs clouds as Bitcoin symbolism. Clouds are in constant transformation, intangible, and symbolize hope. Many financial terms revolve around water, such as liquidity, cash flows, revenue streams, etc. Clouds simultaneously embody Bitcoin’s often neglected fragility. If people were to stop believing in Bitcoin and disconnect their nodes, the network would dissolve like a cloud.
