I vote the bottom one.....because I think it depends...there's abract art...and there's REALLY abstract art that just me scratch my head and go "huh?" There's also a distinction of "good" abstract art, and "bad" abstract art that I think mostly lies within personal taste. *hides under a rock....just in case*
Fascinating A lot of it seems to be redundant but your is far better and abovepar. It has meaning feal and structure, where as others just seem to be just a bunch of deformations. keep up the amazing work my friend
(not saying that everyone else sucks the big one...)
errrm .. you are very good at it
come on ,give me all your tutorials LOL
Abstract Art is sometimes very nice also the stuff
people do in scenedemos which are
often abstract too .
i think it is very important to have a good feel
for what looks good and fits together
and to know a lot of techniques to implement
All together makes a good abstract piece.
Some great looking abstract pieces are just candy for the eye. They look cool and thats all
But i prefer pieces with a meaning behind it. Or with a story behind it. A render with some brush on it doesnt make me warm or cold, but if theres a real story/meaning behind it, it can be interesting. That realy attracts me
well, i think it depen, it will be great if that abstract art and it also good looking and likely to spend much of time on it. On the other hand, if it just look like piece of shit or something like 1 or 2 line on canvas, i think that is not my interest.
I guess I'm also quite dissapointed at my own inability to convey a message through my pieces. Abstract just doesn't cut it for me, I want to go further in art, to actually be able to paint something tangible. Paintings by *enayla and *noah-kh have always had a stronger impact on me than any abstract I've seen.
Could you show me an abstract artwork that portrayed a distinct meaning?
It is normal that only some kinds of art interest you. And it's also normal that abstract art can't impact you like the others simply because abstract art leaves space for viewers' imagination while others are defined in their own topics.
I can't really find one for you because I don't know what you like and what your taste is like. But you can check my gallery. Edifice and Recticore are my recent works which are quite solid and easy to perceive, while Replenish and Subgeneration are more organic and formless but still have a strong meaning behind.
I think Edifice and Recticore are great, but Recticore is more of a 3d scene, rather than abstract. Same with Imperial, it's a scene, a ship flying through some futuristic city. Unless you meant for it to mean something more. I like them plenty, but are they really abstract?
What does Edifice mean? A symbol of power? But if that representation is the defining factor of abstract..pretty much anything can be abstract.
I'm not that picky in what I like, I like a lot of what I see on here, but I'm dissapointed to find that a lot of it really doesn't have much of a story or meaning behind it.
I looked at Replenish and SubGeneration and I fail to see a strong meaning. In the description you said something about "sub" meaning under or hidden. So what? There's no relationship between the image and what you could possibly be trying to say. What did those creations mean to you?
Hmm, I'm not exactly sure what I'm trying to say... I think that abstract shouldn't be defined in such a narrow way because..it is in everything. Well, sorry for making you read this long rant. I hope I didn't say anything that offended you, it was an interesting conversation. I guess I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do with my art.
I think you haven't really looked into it, or perhaps you don't know how to view it. Abstract art means art in a form that is not defined, while the other uncertain parts are left for imagination. It is not only until the objects are solid structure that you can see from it. You can easily identify the ships and buildings in Edifice and Imperial, but can you do the same, with the same attitude, towards Replenish?
If you ask me I can explain my intentions, but bear in mind that abstract art is very interesting in a way that what the viewer sees may not exactly be what the artist wants to show, because abstract art leaves space for more imagination rather than just presentation. While I am explaining you have to see the timeframe too because my art is my reaction towards something at THAT time, in some cases.
Replenish is actually a redefinition of abstract art using light as the dynamic object and focal point. The light is growing and moving like worms, and even the whole scene is not something in the real world, one can feel the power of blossom of something. It is a symbol of life, a presentation of growth.
Subgeneration is also about life. The cherry-like structures are hanging from the organic branches and the whole image symbolizes growth. The light and dots around represents the energy inside the living body and also enhances the feeling that the whole thing is INSIDE something, growing underneath something, and hence SUBgeneration.
I don't know if you understand, or perhaps you will just laugh. But that is, at least, MY abstract art. Most of the pieces, not all however, have a meaning behind. If you really want to know I can tell you piece by piece.
If you are really interested in the description, I urge you to visit a project, which is a collaboration of me and my favourite write Adam. He wrote about my images in a very vivid way with simple but strong words.
