Secular Reward Digital Print
Yesterday I spent a wonderful time teaching abstract art to members of the Launceston Art Society. I shall post photos and comments from the class during the coming week.
One of the main objectives of the class was to look at the content of paintings. It’s not just a case of what you include, but just as important it’s what you leave out that matters. Detail is all well and good, but it doesn’t make you think and imagine anywhere near as much as a painting that has very little content.
A lot of art patrons marvel over the detail that some artists include in their work, why? There is no doubting the visual impact that detail has, but if all is resolved in what you see, where’s the opportunity for a personal, imaginative response from the viewer?
Today’s image is from a series of digital drawings that I did in response to the way we are treating our physical and moral environment.
