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.

Further impressions from the bridleway (1)

It was a sunny afternoon in late May when the cow parsley photographs (https://lagill6.wordpress.com/2020/05/24/beside-the-bridleway-in-may/) were taken The bridleway was totally deserted – no farm vehicles, no other walkers The silence was punctuated only by birdsong and the occasional bleeting of lambs in distant fields

In such circumstances it was not difficult to become absorbed in the exploration of the scene – noticing the relationship between shapes; contrasting textures and tones; the rhythm of the grasses; patterns; the atmosphere, etc.  I accumulated a wealth of material from which I have subsequently enjoyed recalling impressions of the experience. The images in this series are reflections of the feelings and thoughts evoked rather than pictures of the scene.
