Change of direction

change of direction, 2015

Post-conceptual ultra-minimalist organic abstract, original digital UV print from digitally created source up to 300 x 300 cm.

Part of a larger body of work – post-conceptual ultra minimalist organic abstracts, which are, technically speaking, near-final digital deconstruction of source photographs in search of  a moment of tremendous discharge, the exact moment when the unity of pre-existing universe experienced its first schism as reflected in the memory of matter, a happy mishap of computer vision misrepresenting the reality and creative intervention of associative titling of the piece regardless of it’s origin.

Kimono ceremony

kimono ceremony, 2010 – 2015

This one  belongs to a new body of work consisting of ultra-minimalist organic abstracts, which are, technically speaking, near-final digital deconstruction of source photographs. Kimono ceremony was inspired by a photo taken in Japan a while ago so even though it is abstract in every aspect, it’s titled in regard to the original source rather then by association as are other works in this series.

Mondrian reversed at Art Amersfoort 2015

 

Dear Brut

We are happy to inform you that your work has been selected for the live exhibition of Art Amersfoort 2015.

The works we would like to see in the exhibition are:

  1. 895624 Levels of Abstraction With a Little Red Square, 2008

    895624 Levels of Abstraction With a Little Red Square

  2. all systems go, 2013-2014

    All Systems Go

  3. Crawling clouds, 2014

    Crawling Clouds

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.
