Part of the strategy in this project is to go to different landscapes and use the different textures within that landscape to get different abstract images. Using the same landscape i found delivers the same looking images, trees create a lot of lines, water rounder or wiggly lines. So the aim is to have a body of work which is a collection of abstract images from different landscapes. So this week i went on a road trip down south west to Somerset to Weston super mare where i walked around looking for texture, lines and things which i could form into abstraction.
I was looking for bold features or colours to use a blocks of colour using the ICM to make a sweep across the image. Here are a few post production images from this shoot.
Finished Multi layered and ICM images
A few days later i went back and noticed some water reflections which work well with abstraction, i multi layered to get a contrast image in, merge it with an image that has lines in it.
I’m looking out in the landscape to find pockets of art, its all around but i think unless your into that creative mind frame you won’t see anything out there. I have a painting background and i always look out into the world with a frame in mind, my eyes going to pockets of reality and pull out a moment in time thats only visible for that moment in my vision, its unique to me and my creativity.
I can see when looking into the world the images coming out and showing themselves to me.
