Newest Collection: OEMA - Odd Experiments Modern art


16 July 2019


This week's new collection is OEMA. This collection's theme is one somewhat of miscellany - there is no overarching idea that threads through each work, but rather a loose connection that tries to take some point of similarity from the variance they all display. One constant, if anything, is that all of these works present original, inventive ideas in one way or another. Haphazard Cushioning does this by contrasting the opposite colors purple and yellow, the gulf between them an inky black. Viewed from a particular angle, it almost seems like Yellow is embracing its opposite; from another angle, smothering it. Ovoid of Chemicals is another mostly-straightforward work, but for its almost jarring fade from a strong magenta to a somewhat darker, more substantial yellow. The color of the background is close to this other yellow, but not quite even, which gives the impression that the area inside the ovoid defined by this work's contours is cut off from the environment around it. Next, Inside a Radio Receiver is a very digital-styled work that uses wide horizontal beams with tight vertical struts. To give the impression of depth, this work uses the rough color gradient from a blinding white to a more substantial, darker blue or black; and it manages to maintain a persistent feeling of movement and energy as well. Extremely Phallic Object is pixel art, one of the most straightforward such works this gallery has seen so far. The moire that characterizes this work's background, and the color gradient fading from an active yellow towards the center towards a more subdued magenta towards the sides, both draw the viewer's attention towards the center, the work's namesake. A bit blunt of a title, to be sure, but an accurate one. And finally of note, Ruined Statistics uses ripple waves to give a unique impression of depth and curvature that spans from side to side rather than from top to bottom as is more common. Overall the work is raw and imbalanced, yet maintains an enduring sense of motion and intrigue. Please enjoy!

CUBISM


This work boasts a wholly unique compositional style compared to any other work in this gallery, which somehow manages to break from the motifs that its sister works are bound to follow. As is reflected by its name, Cubism alludes to a real artistic style and movement, doing so with just the type of color scheme to be the most effective in that endeavor.

WITCH'S SPELL


This is a simple work that focuses on design with a nice, fairly uncommon background color that complements the design well. The work's vertical lines help to emphasize the power of the spell being performed.

LIGHTNING BIRDS


Being among the most cohesive of the works in its style, this work portrays a flock of birds, made of lightning. The bright, razor-thin skeletons of electricity that comprise their skeletons, with a surrounding electric blue glow that fades into the dark sky behind them, make this work more literal than most, yet at the same time abstract, and meaningful.

A MARVELOUS MESS


This looks less like a typical work of art in this gallery and more like a physical collage, with its spattering of different colors, textures, motifs, and contours. It emphasizes artistic exploration, pushing the boundaries and seeing what can be done.

DEEP POND


Why are ponds green? I dunno. But then, sometimes you just have to jump in, and maybe it'll make sense. This was the first work ever uploaded to Monitors of Modern Art, and serves as a strong start by presenting a simple, meaningful metaphor.
