Abstract Lovers... Unite!

..sure they can unite, but in a very nonconventional non-linear type of group, that may or may not be representational of anything.

Yet, we ask ourselves where will we get anywhere in this nonconventional non-linear type of group? And what might or might not it represent?

I love it. I think it's got very strong emotions in it. It's awesme.

thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
the emotional content behind it is very raw--and dare i say abstract.

I like it it reminds me of another piece i've seen somewhere, but i can't remember from who though, and I see that you used the 3rd's pretty good in the upper left.

thank you muchly.. sometimes the basic tennants of design come in handy when applied in just the right way.

This may be over-worked, but it only adds to the whole emotional outlet that this portrays.
This is lovely.

thank you kindly.. i cant say there was a lot of emotion going on. i suppose on the subconscious level there was because of the strong shapes and colous. most of my images are more about the journey and the experience of creating them- the end result is nice, but it's the experience of doing it that is more satisfying.

Nah, I don't really think it's overworked. I just think it is on the edge of it being so (hoep you got what I mean). It is great indeed, I love your grunge style. While using colors, it stills retains the characteristic grungy feeling of a black&white pic. Great textures. No wonder you got a DD. Congrats ont that; you did a great job. =)

thank you. I think the reason i feel that it is overworked is because it had been a work in progress for awhile and i was having a hard time finding some sort of focus.
I like working in a more grungy style-- tho i don't think of it as grungy per se because most of the grungy work that i see is so dark. colour is such an important part of the process for me.. finding the right tones in just the right places and the over all flow of colour. I guess i dont think of it as grunge because it's more about the textures and the depth that they give.

Hmmm very interesting. I'm more of a B&W grunge person myself, but you have a very nice point of view on it. You seem really talented from what you are saying. Wish I could learn something from you =).
Anyway, I understand you on the overworking issue so don't worry, as the final result is great as it is. Congrats again!

there's some great b/w grunge out there. basically it all boils down to whatever visual language suits you, its when you start to add your own nuances to your work that it is able to transcend, when it starts to speak for itself. as artists we are constantly refining and adding new layers and meanings and depths to our visual language.

Uh Huh, very nicely put. Currently working my way to a better personal style as well. Hope to see more art from you!
