I could fill this blog with (mostly floral) photos, but I have also been painting. Yesterday I did some catastrophic watercolouring, then decided to go abstract in a big way.
|expression I (space control)|
I once started a "space control" series, one of which is featured in an earlier post. Somehow that idea got lost, but I'm reviving it now. I like the idea of abstracts being control of space - the space on the canvas or paper. After all, visual artists spend all their time filling empty spaces of various size and shape, just as music composers (and performers) fill the air with sound (or silence). Neither 'image' existed before, so it's a creative challenge to put something in our field of vision or hearing. This makes the idea subservient to its execution, which is just as well, since having the idea is not enough to actually make a piece of music or art!
