Hear what you see

From the early years of the twentieth century  the development, first,  of electronic instruments and then of other new ways of making, recording and transmitting sound, caused a rethink of the definition of the word ‘music’.  Such developments led to some composers creating works that could not be adequately communicated through conventional notation.  Various forms of graphic notation were adopted

This image, although it is primarily intended to be a visual abstract, suggests, perhaps, a relationship with graphic notation.  Maybe you can imagine the mood and the qualities of sound the hieroglyphics and symbols suggest.  I think Kandinsky might have been interested!

At the water’s edge

The retreating waters at low tide often leave interesting and. sometimes. intriguing patterns. This example could well have been produced by a figure drawing artist!

Animated rock (4)

The Isles of Scilly, situated 30 miles off the southwest tip of Cornwall, form an area of outstanding natural beauty. An interesting feature of the landscape is the number of granite outcrops that take on the form of naturally sculpted mysterious creatures or characters. Could this be a prototype for Neanderthal man?

One man and his dog

This seaweed ‘picture’ (‘One man and his dog’) 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.

Size matters: impact is important (6)

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 Imagine walking into the room for the first time.
