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.

All of these paintings began with looking at real things in the world. For over a decade my focus has been on hedges and buildings for the simple reason that they are in my day to day periphery. Either in Brooklyn as the view out of the window or in Canada, where I go each year, these forms routinely are what are in my way by either blocking a ‘view’ or as a presence that I have to go around . They command my attention for their solidity and the way they sit on the earth’s surface. Constantly acknowledging these forms allows me to feel parallels with my own existence in the world.

Finding the color that will produce light, space and the feeling of hope, (goodness, elegance, rightness of purpose) in each work is part of my drive. But I also work with many of painting’s other elements to push for a physical sense of vastness. Through spatial and coloristic interplay, issues of space vs illusionism, conceptualism vs physicality, classicism vs newness, exist together. It’s in these co-existences that I hope to create in paintings, a freshness and a place where art, myself and the outer world, mesh. This is how I approach painting. It’s not that I’m painting a ‘landscape,’ it’s that I know I’m fundamentally a part of it and the reason for painting is to find out a bit more about that. – statement

Art, in my meaning.
is working with creative independent spiritual and by natural way.
I has never expected the thing till job finished.
That is also consciousness aware of present and feel relax.
Moreover; I can find, all the completed work,
the movement in placeful, the brightness in the dark and the harmony inconflict
which are changing state and stable state in the same time.

Whenever, the more I am trying to learn what it means, the worse I can understand.
However, I has given up to understand the meaning neglected myself, then I can get it.
Nevertheless, no word can be explained, the answer has been in my work.

………

For me, photography is just like a door conveying the aesthetics of art.
It is a kind of art created from the real situation around me which can happen every second.
Sometimes I seek for the beauty of things surrounded and then shoot them
with personal perspectives and feeling towards the objects or incidents.
Sometimes when I would like to forward my idea to the others,
I will bring and redesign all stuff with beauty and hidden message to the viewers of my photos.

In part of photography, I never focus on any preferred photography style
as I do not want to frame myself with specific kind of photo shooting
and be more loyal to my own feeling. When I am clear with myself,
the outcome is always marvelous.

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.

The main theme of Yoonjin’s work is ‘Seeing the Unseen’ which has been inspired by the emptiness in oriental painting. Her work explores the meaning of the empty space in oriental painting and the definition of invisibility in relation to the space. In fact some parts of her work seem unused. Yet they have been planned with as much care as the objects. What she wants to do in her work is to help the viewer to see the unseen and sense the invisible through both invisibility and visibility. Then the viewer is stimulated between the boundary of the invisibility and the visibility. – Yoonjin Jung : Artist Statement
