Azurebumble : ‘AI : Series’ (Photography Book)

::

::

Recently, I’ve curated a number of image series by photographers from ‘Flickr’ on my blog ‘Aesthetic Investigations’. Subsequently, I thought it would be interesting to document these works in a book. Therefore, i’ve arranged a collection of ’39’ abstract and minimal photographic series by these ’32’ artists. A selection of pages from the book can be viewed below, a full book preview can be seen: HERE

Thank you to everyone who contributed their images to this project.

Cecil Touchon : ‘Nostalgic Regress’ – Fusion Series (Collage)

::

I’m exploring the boundaries between art and poetry in these intimate papiers colles composed of bits of lettering and the empty spaces between. Stripped of literary meaning, they rely on composition, rhythm and visual movement to convey their meaning which is ambiguous and intuitive. These works are constructed from distressed street posters and billboards that have been edited into inlayed bits of printed matter creating passages that move from figure to ground and then reverse back to figure through gentle curves, irregular grids and subtle shading. Snippets of lettering almost become recognizable letters or perhaps proposals for a new poetic alphabet but always slip back into forms and spaces to create possibilities of enigmatic and open, simultaneously plausible interpretations.

Touchon’s work is a selection of collaged, acrylic paintings on either canvas or paper. There are several works from his Fusion Series, which present simple geometric shapes simply arranged, within illusionistic frames [framing devices]. There are overlapping rectangles, with rounded wedges that resemble irregularly cut pie sections. Occasionally he inserts bits of paper, spattered with Hebrew script or musical notations. Sometimes he paints paper then cuts out shapes. Other times, collage is in the form of paper applied to the surface, then painted over with solid color, so there is a ghost of a collage.

Most of these works contrast small areas of bright hue with overall neutrally colored surroundings. What is clear is the extent to which Cecil Touchon is in love with a formalism that, way back when, was loaded with revolutionary significance. That he does not think that those early experiments in pure shape and color have been improved upon at all is evident in the way he uses the motifs, and in the way he has antiqued them artificially with pencil shading and other means to make individual elements and the overall compositions into found artifacts…” ~ [Extract : Janet Tyson – Fort Worth Star-Telegram]

Since the early 1990s, Christophe has been building a body of work that takes an allusive approach to the human condition, he’s noted for his intimate and personal documentary black and white and colour photographs. He’s extended his expression into making assemblages and short films, always working intuitively. His intimate images both haunt and intrigue us, creating an rich, layered visual language. bio

“My work is diverse. Predominantly I work in the field of abstract expressionism. The foundation of my work comes from an intensive study of the ‘nude’ and although the formal representation of the figure has completely vanished from my practice, there is an underlying system or structure that has it’s roots in the abstraction of the human form. I rarely plan or rehearse a piece, working intuitively I allow an image to evolve naturally, to have a life of its own. I am interested in the idea that when something is destroyed another is simultaneously created, as in reincarnation or rebirth. I often use surfaces that have previously been worked on, rather than a blank canvas, I react to existing marks or images. Working in this way produces results that I could not plan for or even imagine, and it is important that the ingredient which attracted me in the first instance is not completely lost but given a new life. Often I leave some of the original elements to pay respect to its contribution.” Jai Llewellyn : Artist Statement

Lee Kaloidis is an improvisational composer and, like a lyric poet, works relatively quickly and without plan. From the first mark, a painting evolves towards a destination that is the byproduct of strongly intuited relationships. When excecuted, these relationships are intended to stand, though often are sacrificed as the work shifts and struggles to become an original whole. This unfolding makes each painting, and an entire series of paintings, an historic sequence of events. [extract : about the work]

“My painting is a direct byproduct of intense involvement in improvisational music and free-verse poetic composition. It is about change and movement, balance and unity, and ultimately about natural order. What drives movement is tension. I like to think of my paintings as places where the most divergent and surprising things collide, converging at just the right time into new expressions of unity.” Lee Kaloidis
