The artist Fabian Oefner creates paintings on water that often end up resembling an iris.

The artwork is part of a series titled 'Oil Spill' and was created in a way that makes it fluid and changeable. By pouring water into a black bin and then taking a syringe that he uses to place drops of colored oil into that water, the artist manages to create these poignant images. The colors are able to change and make up gradient patterns and imagery that is almost haunting in its ability to replicate the human eye.

These paintings on water show that sometimes flexibility in artistic endeavors can have more of an impact than ensuring the artist has complete control in every step of the process.
