how movement defines artwork
My Series 6 – digital painting / art prints – Dan Beck 2005
We are unique in many ways – but one of the things which clearly makes us different is the movement which each of us finds comfortable. As I look at this piece which is original art – yet number six in a series; I am struck by the distinct shapes which fill the space.
They are my movements using a mouse – they are flowing, comfortable strokes which yield this cross colored digital painting which hints at mountains and clouds, but never quite gets there.
It was meant to be on the cusp – that place that totters in between abstract and representational. It was meant to be done fast and with some abandon. It attempted to have the spontaneity of the first in the series. Everything follows something else and everything is followed – but intention is important – and at least with the original prints from any of these – they maintain the integrity of being original art.
- Abstract Art Gallery – the best works from this series are found here – examples of other more free form explorations as well
- Types of Sculpture in Stone – Though the main jist of this page is about Stone Reliefs Sculptures & Sculpture in the Round – there is a wonderful paragraph at the bottom pointing out – how it truly is best to not think about these rules or differences as an artist
- Art & Perception – a more scientific look at the evolution of abstract art coming from perception itself
