New Collection: FSMA

29 August 2016


This week's new collection is FSMA (guess what that acronym stands for and you can name an upcoming work!). Somewhat like last week's CCMA, this collection is fairly calm, solid, and fair. The designs this week are fairly reserved, focusing more on bringing out one general color or vague image than on genuinely innovating. Titanic Playfight is a good example, taking an extremely rare color scheme and playing with it, using a deliberate set of rough edges to highlight the color's contrast. Mispy Wisp is another calm, cool work with a bit of flow to it. Dull Depression is another work with an unusual color scheme, though in this case it's because it is darker than usual, a bit broody. Dim Conflict, by contrast, is a deep blue-purple work that tries to bring out its colors by contrasting them with white, black, and each other. And finally of note, High Heel is a fun pink work with a somewhat less abstract design - it's fun to look at. Please enjoy!



VENEREAN LANDSCAPE

22 October 2015


The name of this work is inspired by its intense warmth. Comprable, perhaps, to the surface of the planet Venus, only with less noxious gas. Like the planet venus, as Venerean Landscape ascends from the bottom, rises in altitude, it becomes less intense and more calming, to match Venus's upper atmosphere and general exterior appearance. Perhaps it is an utterly hellish place, but at least from our point of view, Venus is indeed a truly beautiful planet.

MEGA RIPPLE WAVE

19 November 2015


Some sort of wave travels along, and as it reaches the center of this work it expands and reaches a sort of explosion, from which it departs in a marvelous array of colors. It is abstraction incarnate - what this picture really displays is impossible to understand, but it begs to be examined and reexamined, and admired for its beauty, its incomprehensibility.

CHALICE OF THE UNIVERSE

23 September 2015


Like the universe, the chalice is only transient. In fact, it doesn't even look like a chalice - perhaps this picture is misnamed. It invites interpretation. The pastel fade from soft yellow to baby blue may represent harmony, and the rough moire in the center of the work is somehow lyrical. Chalice is not a literal title, for it is just an abstraction. The essence of modern art.

DEEP POND

22 May 2015


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 in the Monitors of Modern Art library, and is a very strong start. It is a beautiful, yet simple, metaphor.
