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.

At the water’s edge (5)

This seaweed ‘portrait’ (‘The Mystic’) is exactly as observed at low tide – nothing added and nothing taken away (except the sand!)

At the water’s edge

A beach at low tide often presents a wide range of interesting shapes and patterns. Sometimes strands of seaweed, particularly in silhouette, can suggest the outlines of characters, objects or landscape features. In these instances I have retained the original shapes but have removed or neutralized the background. Otherwise there have been no additions or subtractions to the original photos.
