In great art there is some mysterious confluence of the formal elements that creates a harmonious visual experience. Beyond the visual, some art can evoke heightened consciousness for the viewer. Even if it just lasts an instant, there is a euphoric sense of connection. It is an elusive ideal, but working with the right intention, an artist may occasionally attain it. Minimal art dealt with a new vision of beauty that was austere; elemental. It also opened possibilities for experiential phenomena to occur. In the presence of the art object, the viewer may experience a heightened awareness of spaces, colors, or other qualities of the site. I am interested in the interaction of color and in very structured composition. I enjoy the experiential quality – such as a glow – that often results. I believe in making art that has a simple, positive, peaceful presence. Artist Statement

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.

Artist Statement

The urban landscape with its man-made structures confronts us all the time. We live, work, and play in it, but it’s so ordinary that we often don’t really see it. Our eyes take it in, but nothing registers internally, perhaps because the urban landscape seems rather unremarkable. With so many of these urban visual images continually flowing through our consciousness, we don’t see that there is more there. My interest is in making the unremarkable remarkable.

What a fascinating place the urban landscape is, with its intersection of architectural shapes, light, and color. Using these elements, I strive to create a structure within an image that’s especially satisfying. Sometimes the scene is mostly geometrical, consisting of trapezoids, rectangles, triangles, and circles. Sometimes it’s sweeping curves punctuated by straight lines and smooth gradations of light.

The interplay of these forms moves the eye to sense the interrelatedness of all of the shapes. The repetition of identical elements points, consolidates, and directs the eye toward other interesting elements. The shapes all vie for position, all want to take center stage, yet are unable to move. But the eye can move, the eye can see the relationships, and the eye can pull the image together into a whole.

For the past two years, Jacobson has been exploring a new body of work entitled Place (Series). They are minimal still-lives, and are the result of placing rectangles of various sizes in a variety of both man-made and natural settings. They suggest both a range of architectures and the contradictions between architecture and nature. Inherent in this work is the dialogue between the ‘abstract’ and the ‘real’, an idea also present in his earlier, out-of-focus images. There are also notions of the infinite, echoing the very white and very dark portraits Jacobson began nearly twenty years ago. – [Ext : Julie Saul Gallery]

My pre-occupation as an artist is with creating highly distilled, contemplative nuances of feeling in print. I aim to compose images – drawn from nature and memory – of stark yet tactile forms, held momentarily out of balance; forms disappearing into immaterial shadows and configurations of form in spatial settings, undergoing transformation. I’m fascinated by forms appearing like projections onto surfaces, fragile and immaterial articulations, punctuated by the interplay of light and shade. Re-discovering delicate forms in space at distances defined by rhythm and structure, are of interest to me.

My objective is to create a state of suspension of individual elements, caught in a complex of layers with deceptive simplicity. The creation of these images is intuitive in nature. The creative process is ongoing, with every intuition, reflection and configuration, pre-figuring another possibility. The printing process is an integral part of my working process. The separation and building up of layers, multiple overprinting, the use of inks of differing viscosities – these modifications inform the work as it evolves. The tactile qualities of print-making, the depth and richness of surface, are crucial. – [Artists Statement]

Based near Lausanne on the shores of Lake Geneva, Christian Coigny has for the past 30 years developed a career in traditional black and white photography in parallel to his work in publicity and fashion. Christian works primarily with film. His work is anchored in a classical education and is strongly influenced by American painters such as Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keefe or Andrew Wyeth…
