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.

Gianni Galassi : Photography

“These monochrome photographs are the result of my recent return to my black & white film years, with all the experience acquired in the digital years. Back to the future, forward to the past…” Gianni Galassi

Gianni Galassi’s images are focused around the relationship between light and shadow on the surfaces of urban and industrial buildings. Which leads to a set of architectural visions geometrically combined within the frame, emphasizing a whole of elements which transcend the original function of the portrayed artifact, and giving rise to unintentional aesthetic values. The square format sets a distance from the typical rectangular or panoramic frame of movies and TV. A symbol of geometrical purity, the square suggests a formal reading of the image, which is freed from any narrative intention. [Extract]

I’m interested in the non-verbal dialogue that occurs between line, shape, and color. The elements in my paintings are composed of shapes that are indistinct. They may appear to be something specific, but that remains in question. This uncertainty, as well as their interaction within what appears to be a landscape, is at the core of my paintings. I’m interested in the line that divides the perceived rational world from the inner landscape. In my work I’m focusing on composing and dissolving of forms, creating paintings that are both organic and structured, often whimsical. I’m inspired by relationship that exists between land and sky and the forms that link the two together; the gaseous quality of smoke or a mist combined with the rigid form of a tower; the expansiveness of a body of water met with undecipherable man made structures; to make solid the space that lays between two elements creating a unique form.

Renato D’Agostin : Tokyo Untitled (Photography Series)

Renato’s photographs are deeply rooted in the classic elements that make up his medium. Light and shadow are fused by extreme angles and the compression of space and timelessness. His images are painterly abstracts, sketches of a place that are sometimes unrecognizable, recontexturealized as shape, form and an interaction, a push and pull between negative and positive spaces.

“In 2007, I turned my attention to Japanese photography, which inspired me to explore what my point of view could be in a city so far from the world that had always surrounded me, but so close to the photographic imagery towards which I was addressing my attention. Longing to break the unconscious, immediate and easy processes of the known and the predictable, I traveled to Tokyo for the first time. I was immediately struck by a sense of disorientation and an inability to quickly locate my own position within the geography of the city.

My lack of precise references to the external world created in me feelings of isolation and detachment from my previously known realities. I was bewitched by the essential and monochromatic geometric forms, so delicate and precise, of the experience of street life, where these forms cause sounds to fall into a deep silence, muffling the interaction between architecture and human figures. I was impelled toward a quest for the unseen, for details and hidden elements. My perception of this outside world lost all sense of time, revealing an essence described by a language of the surreal and the abstract.

I later returned to Tokyo to repeat the experience. Guided by the same quest, but with a greater awareness of the cultural separation, I let isolation become introspection. I sought to recreate this world that belonged to me, as it is reflected by the city’s reality, while appropriating images and moments that delineate the “me” within its boundaries. It’s become my Tokyo. These works represents a visual record of my journey and its invisible elements diluted in visible everyday life.”

Mark Rothko : Red Abstracts

Mark Rothko. Mauve and Orange. Oil on canvas.

One of the preeminent artists of his generation, Mark Rothko is closely identified with the New York School, a circle of painters that emerged during the 1940s as a new collective voice in American art. During a career that spanned five decades, he created a new and impassioned form of abstract painting. Rothko’s work is characterized by rigorous attention to formal elements such as color, shape, balance, depth, composition, and scale; yet, he refused to consider his paintings solely in these terms. He explained:

“It is a widely accepted notion among painters that it does not matter what one paints as long as it is well painted. This is the essence of academicism. There is no such thing as good painting about nothing.”
