I marked this one to commend as it is something way outside the norm, way different. This type of thing was being done way before Photoshop using darkroom techniques and even layering and actual paper and glue. I’m not sure how this one was done but it’s an ‘A’ for effort. It’s an art piece and I’d love to know the story behind the person in the image. Why did the artist choose those elements? Why those colours? This is storytelling in a different way and artist expression – well done.

    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.

  • 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!
