Catherine Bussiere: Abstract

Abstract: Abstract art uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. (Rudolph Arnheim, Visual Thinking)

I like that: “which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references”

I played with that thought this morning in my kitchen
looking to distort
looking at shapes
stepping away from references
taking one thing and making it another
looking for feel rather than imagery

once taken, images were cropped
slightly modified to bring them, yet, to another place
how interesting to use one medium, photography, which is so representative, and go down the abstract path

The following pictures don’t really go into the abstract category but I wanted to share them with you as I really enjoyed taking them earlier this week.

  1. Loved your abstracts. What a nice idea to help get started on an abstract rug. One can audition different looks and when one pleases you, try to duplicate it in a rug.
