More abstract art created during the pandemic


Photography based abstract 2020; original 2014 image of sunrise over Kentucky Lake

As the year of the novel coronavirus draws to a close, I have a few more abstracts to add to the illustrations of my life story.

I added “Molten Images” and “Glowing Avalanche” to my collection of COVID-19 influenced creations. These photography-based digital abstractions evolved from a photographic image I made in 2014 of a sunrise over Kentucky Lake.

Molten Images on canvas-signed

I usually process my abstracts on high gloss aluminum, but I wanted to add this view of how “Molten Images” would look on 3/4-inch mirror-image wrapped canvas … which I think gives it even more impact visually.

Either way, “Molten Images” is very abstract in nature. The metallic gold and silver are very fluid.

Now, how many images do you see in this abstract??

Glowing Avalanche

Here’s one explanation of my “Glowing Avalanche” landscape — “Volcanic eruptions happen when lava and gas are discharged from a volcanic vent. … The most dangerous type of volcanic eruption is referred to as a ‘glowing avalanche‘. This is when freshly erupted magma forms hot pyroclastic flow which have temperatures of up to 1,200 degrees.”

Note: I decided on this title BEFORE the recent eruption of the volcano in Hawaii.

Side note: I also thought of “Fire on the Mountain” but the wildfires were raging in the western United States at the time. So not to appear insensitive to the personal loss of many,  I pushed that possible title aside until that devastating 2020 event was less of a hot topic in the news.

 

 

New abstracts in ‘River Life’ show at Illinois gallery; Facebook Live event Oct. 17


“City in Pane,” as well as two new abstracts, “Flood of Emotions” and “Where Two Rivers Flow as One,” will be on display in the Gaslight Art Colony gallery in Marshall, Illinois Oct. 17 through Nov. 14.

A virtual opening for River City Art Association’s “River Life” membership show is set for 5 p.m. CDT Oct. 17 during the GAC gallery’s Facebook Live event.  My pieces and more than 40 other works in that show can be purchased on the website at gaslightartcolony.com

“City in Pane,” a giclee print on canvas, recently received two awards in photography. The building in this photograph reflects the Terre Haute, Indiana, landscape to the west where the Wabash River flows just beyond.

“Flood of Emotions” makes its debut in the ‘River Life’ membership show. The photography-based abstraction I created using my landscape photograph of a sunrise over Kentucky Lake.

“Where Two Rivers Flow As One,” another abstract previously titled “X Marks The Spot,” I created last year using my photograph of rooster tail feathers.
