negative space, balance, and madras color
My Series 4 – digital painting / art prints – Dan Beck 2005
This isn’t one of my favorites in this series – but more because it is a little obvious for me. The series is about the line between representation and abstraction – but this piece is clearly mountainous and therefore wasn’t quite as successful.
On the other hand, it is pleasing to look at and reads well. The negative space is particularly strong and despite the strong mountain image – it is light – built almost like a sculpture whose base seems too light for the weight of the piece.
What are holding these mountains up? And why are they wearing a madras shirt?
when searching for sculptures and balance – this artist – Michelle Farrell – came up – three nice pieces – good space- good form – worth checking out
simple discussion of space, negative space and form – sometimes simple says more
