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.

Reinoud Oudshoorn takes the perspective of the illusory language in painting and applies it to his sculptures. He creates a bridge between the spatial illusion of the flat surface and the concrete reality of the three-dimensional sculpture. [Extract : Introduction]

statement

A quote from Gary Winogrand has lodged itself indelibly in my mind: “There is nothing as mysterious as a fact clearly described”. It is this seemingly contradictory combination of mystery and fact that keeps me searching from the corners of my eye. My work however is not about documenting locations or any particular subjects / objects found in them, rather I am drawn to a de-contextualized world, to fragments of reality where particular forms, light and the body language of materials may combine to stir both senses and psyche.

My approach is that of a gatherer rather than a hunter: eyes open to chance encounters, mind alert to the surrounds. And like gatherers I favour places and conditions that have proven fertile harvesting grounds: work sites, industrial parks, ’empty’ windows of shops / storefronts that are undergoing refurbishment, back alleys. Here space dividing structures of glass, mesh and other materials abound. These act as thresholds between visual fields, simultaneously hiding and revealing realities that lie behind and in-between. On the picture plane, complex fusions dissolve into shapes and gestures, a meditation.

With my projects I work like a cook who invents meals around the best produce found in that season, allowing myself to be guided by experience and imagination rather than the prescriptions of a recipe or plan. Unlike many contemporary art photographers, I do not invent the scene nor significantly alter my images. To me the power and resonance of a photograph lies in the fact that it was plucked from the real world, that someone’s psyche interacted with and interpreted a particular piece of reality at a unique and inspired moment. The metamorphosis that constitutes a photograph is what continues to captivate and inspire me.
