This seaweed ‘picture’ (‘The White Knight’) is exactly as observed at low tide – nothing added an d nothing taken away (except the sand!) The colours have been changed to highlight the contrast. Other titles/interpretations are obviously possible.

Siza matters: impact is important

A visual image, whether picture or graphic design, needs ‘breathing space’ in order to communicate fully with the viewer. It needs to be exhibited as created by the artist. Reproductions (eg. in books or online) can, at best, provide a useful introduction.

The purpose of this series is to convey something of the intended size of the artworks. The images used are from previous posts on this site. Most are abstracts influenced by post abstract expressionism artists.

Attention should focus on a feeling response rather than a rational analysis.
