FUMA - Formerly Unnamed Modern Art
These works were finished years ago, but put aside because, at the time, I could not come up with names for them. That issue has since been remedied, and these works can instead serve as a look back to earlier compositional and artistic styles in this gallery. First of note, Divider and Sustainer is a cohesive but abstract work, focusing on rays shooting out from the bottom-left corner. These divide the work into several rough sections - the top-left is red, the lower-right is dark gray, and the middle is white. To that end, this work's title refers to the middle section, dividing the work in half across the diagonal. Glace is a very cool-feeling work, which is balanced out by the warm tint from the white area in the lower-left. A confluence of moire exists towards the center of the image, pulling in flecks from across the rest of the background. Given the texture and overall coloration, these may be shards of snow or ice. Needles is a work in an uncommon, but not unique, archetype, in that it is composed entirely and solely of vertical lines, extending from the bottom and fading out towards the top. The variance in color and texture between each line keeps the work feeling interesting despite its singlemindedness. Streakify is an intensely colorful, almost garish work. Its primary color is a pink-violet, but it also incorporates blue, yellow, and green, in loud, thick vertical bands. The wavering, fading texture towards the top of the work is what helps give it its name. But my personal favorite work this week is Double Digital, a work in the Full Digital Modern Art style, split down the center and repeating itself to either side. The coloration is unusually nuanced for this type of work, as is the texture and shading; the fact that each side of the work is smaller than a full image, and thus has more need to pare down and focus on the small details, really helps this work stand out. Please enjoy!
