Simple, clean patterned geometry detail of a service passage in National Gallery in Prague was calling for only a slight high-key treatment, much unlike the torture most of my photos are subjected to on their way to the gallery wall.

Minimalist high-key architectural abstract, original digital UV print from digitally created source up to 100 x 70 cm.

Dear Mr. Carniollus,

I am writing you today to announce to you that we have selected your piece entitled Retro Summer to be on our Top Tier list for the Summer Palette Art Competition.  This is not a list we publish for every compe­tition. We compile it when the quality of the submissions warrants an extended list of art we want to pro­mote. If I am writing you today, it is because the Jury saw something exceptional in your work. That’s why your piece is included in the top tier!

We think that making it on the Top Tier list is a great accomplishment and we want to reward that.

Within the following week or so, I will be publishing the Top Tier list on our site. This list will include: your art, your name, the title medium and dimensions of your piece, the paragraph you sent us explaining in your own words what your piece is about and a direct link to your web site.

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.

Halászbástya goes to Louvre

Fisherman’s Bastion

Non-conceptual photography, original digital UV print up to 50 x 70 cm.

Halászbástya (Fisherman’s Bastion) in Budapest is one of the top Budapest attractions. The Bastion takes its name from the guild of fishermen that was responsible for defending this stretch of the city walls in the Middle Ages. It is a viewing terrace, with many stairs and walking paths. Here, reflected in the windows of the neighbouring building.

Dear brut carniollus,

We were thrilled to include your work in the digital display at the Louvre on July 13th as part of the Architecture Collection. It was magnificent to see work from photographers representing over 191 different countries displayed together at the most esteemed museum in the world. Thank you for being a part of it!

We are excited to announce that the books featuring select Exposure Award Collections are almost ready! The hard cover printed version will be available soon!

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.

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

  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.
