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.

  1. This is a good idea, Louis, and I like what you said about reproductions. They’re important when we have nothing else but as you said, they can’t do more than introduce us to the work. For the experience, we need to be with art in person and attend to our feelings. Ah, I miss being able to go to museums!
