Art: Abstract Paintings

Lately I have been painting and drawing quite a lot. Actually, more painting than drawing, which I normally do not. Hence I decided to post some art related stuff here.

Here it goes.

This one I called 'Chaos in Space', and I think I started it some time in 2011 by putting different colours on a gray A2 piece of paper and afterwards drawing different shapes on it with a black marker. This shows a uniformity that was broken, by the chaos, of colours that make up the background. I added a layer of noise with Photoshop on it to add to the painting. In reality, I guess it looks slightly different. Hence it falls under the category of multimedia, which I like to do very much.

The next abstract painting is 'The RED STRIPE', which is another unfinished work that I finished now during Easter. This painting relates to Architecture, since it was a rough sketch for a school project on architecture. It was meant to show experience of movement on an abstracted street. I added several elements to the painting, since it had been on my wall look dull and miserable for a while. The reason for the red element is to a forbidden yet desirable element that is often found on every street. I shall leave this element to ones own interpretation. Additionally, I used very light layers on photoshop to the photograph, but this shouldn't radically change the feel of the A2 painting.

The third abstract painting isn't finished yet, since it needs several layers and essential elements to convey an atmosphere and a feeling. It is a rather long painting, possibly good for a rather large window. I would like to make it show qualities of abstracted light, but I am not sure how I will achieve this yet... Right now, it looks like this:
(Obviously I will update it when it is finished and show the process - I love processes)



'The Abstraction of Light*' 155x30 cm, non-finished, acrylics and marker.






The fourth abstract painting that I have tried to finish during Easter is a rather interesting A2 painting, that is very experiential. I didn't know for long what to call it, but I ended up calling it 'The MOMENT' or actually 'The INSTANT'. Here it is.



'The INSTANT', A2, Acrylics, collage and black indian Ink.


Additionally I have at least two works that I could work on. They are the two following A2 painting backgrounds, that are nameless so far. I will have to see if inspiration hits me.
