Solarized Geometry – 10-09-20

Solarized Geometry

After my drawing Roundism – 29-08-20 it was time to delve into this type of solarized geometry. The latter is about properties of space that are related with distance, shape, size, and relative position of figures. The square, triangle and circle in the upper left corner are a reminder that whatever complex form we might see it is build up from simple geometrical sub-forms. As such, this is an old principle every art student at art school before the World War II was trained in, when students actually still learned something of value.

Ambiguous Image?

Through the process of solarization I found these abstract forms derived from the female body that I could use to abstract, but only a little bit, just to have the spectator interpret them both at the same time. Moreover, I thought it was fun to see if the principle of an ambiguous image works the same way with geometry and body shapes.

Further Abstraction

Perhaps I can take the abstraction into solarized geometrical forms even further and this might bring me something ‘post-roundism’ because I think the style feels a little exhausted for the time being. Perhaps I will work out some oil paintings based after these roundism drawings. Time to move on. Got any ideas?
