06.24.2019 Abstracts

After wandering around Quabbin Park looking for compositions and not really being inspired by much despite the nice sunny day, I was about to pack up when I noticed some interesting patterns. You can probably guess their identities, but I’ll wait on that.

  1. Those are excellent abstracts, with rich complementary colors. Idiosyncratically, the network of light blue lines in the second one reminded me of the parkways on a map of the Bronx.

  2. These are stunning. The color, texture, and form juxtaposition draw me in and hold my interest for a long time.

    The colors in the first remind of me of the work of Gustav Klimt. I suppose it’s the gold, but also the gold and blue combination, that brought him to mind. In the second, I’m especially taken with what appears to be an embossed leaf at the edge, center right. Taken as a whole, I can’t stop seeing two people (woman on the right, looking toward a man with a lowered head) with the leaf-bearing tree behind them.

    • The embossed leaf I see too although someone on Facebook saw a leaping dolphin so I can’t not see that. But try as I might I am not seeing the couple. Klimt certainly did like using gold hues. When I do these I don’t look for “things” but appealing patterns. I think my vision is too literal but I am always glad for others to point out something they see. That makes me happy I was able to provide some interest besides my own.

        Abstracts like this are interesting. Sometimes I see only the pattern, and sometimes particular images suggest themselves. Actually, I first saw the “couple” as a river floodplain, with an assortment of oxbows. It’s a good reason to look at abstract images more than once. I never know what will show up with a second — or tenth — look.

    It reminded me of cave painting more than Klimt, but either way absolutely stunning and I’m so glad you included a link since I seem to have missed it the first time around.

    • Thanks, Melissa. I honestly never have anyone else’s work in my mind when I make images. I am sure they are all in my head somewhere but it’s never conscious. Whether a cave apinter or someone more modern like Klimt, I am always glad that one of my images reminds of an accomplished artist.
