These artworks are photo-creations of Nawfal Johnson’s original paintings, and/or/also, image creations from photographs captured of decaying urban walls. “Disorderly-Order”, the name of this series, has two distinct meanings. One, there is a method (Order) to the madness (Disorder) in the execution of these artworks. Two, the artist is taking a “more orderly” painting, or a fragment of an urban wall (photographed), and turing it up-side-down, and inside out, to get to the final photographic art representation. The disorderly from within the work, that is the order of the design built into the photographic artwork. Thus, these are ‘two-steps’ artwork creations—first-step, creating a painting or photographing an urban still-life of a wall; and then, second-step, taking the original creation and designing a final art photograph. Many of these artworks are Geometric Abstract works, as Nawfal is highly influenced by the great abstract artists Mark Rothko and Piet Mondrian, who also used a considerable amount of geometry in their works.
