Perhaps you have a new camera?

street-gliding in Cuba

An interesting image of which I can see a red vehicle although I feel it would benefit from a little more focus. It is an action shot and appears a bit blurred for me to view this very clearly. However, the choice of subject fits the brief well, the angle is good and you have captured the moment of speed, its just a little too fast. Perhaps you have a new camera? I’ve just bought one myself and I’m taking some quite similar shots so we are both still learning. A good attempt, do please keep on trying.

Exhibition dates are: 17 April to 10 May.

Artists were invited to submit images for a juried art exhibition in Mondrian’s birthplace: Amersfoort, the Netherlands. Exhibition will take place in April/May 2015 at Archipel Gallery.

One hundred years ago in 1915 Mondrian exhibited his first abstracted paintings in Holland: the Pier & Ocean series. Artists were asked to show how their work reflects any aspect of this ground-breaking artist’s transition from representational to abstract work. Accompanying this exhibition is a contemporary art route along the canals of Amersfoort, also inspired by Mondrian’s work, May to September.

My contribution is based on exploration of a tessellation diagram, a computer generated grid created by recursively executing a random split on parent rectangle area with a thingie called dust-line (random directional dot cluster progression) along a randomly selected split course. Portions of a grid are then hand painted to produce the final image (in case of 895624 Levels of Abstraction With a Little Red Square, the first in series) or a starting point of a mixed media intervention with photographic elements resulting in final digital image.

In fact, the process of creating these works could easily be called Mondrian reversed since it starts from abstract computer generated pattern and proceeds towards non-abstract by incorporating photographic fragments.

  • It’s rare to see a good abstract image made with multiple exposure techniques, but hey – look at this! The play of colours and textures is amazing. I really love the way it has been put together. I can’t tell how many blended pictures I am looking at but I like it – an amazing idea. It’s a little bit messy but that’s the whole beauty of it. The more I look at it the more new things I discover. Well done!

Departures

departures, 2014

Departures belongs to a larger body of works with a general theme of urban landscape. Original digital images are created by digitally collaging several photographs harvested in cities around the world. The resulting artwork represent artist (quite so often surreal) impression of urbanity while at the same time offering a level of recognisable details helping a viewer to re-place the final image into a real world, even though not all elements originate from the same place. Which in case of departures points to Tokyo, Japan.

Help

This one was initially created as a book cover and is one of not so many pieces of pure computer graphics in my work. It seemed to fit this year’s 2. Niels Bugge Cartoon-Award 2014 theme Oceans are in our hands quite nicely, but even so I was very pleased with being accepted into actual exhibition in Viborg, Denmark. Please check out the catalogue of all the wonderful works in this exhibition.

Another copy went to Netherlands to be a part of The Coffee Art Project Amsterdam and as a support for Project Waterfall. Which is is the central focus of The Allegra Foundation, and aims to transform lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in African coffee-growing countries.
