Pure Evil Smoke Art Photography Artwork, and my New Color Name, PURE EVIL

Color Code: #D31C34 is “PURE EVIL”! It’s not Pure Evil, it is just the Unofficial Name I have given that Hex Color Code.



Title: “Pure Evil”.

Creation Date of the Naming for Color, ‘Pure Evil’: 16 February 2019.

Artist’s Note:

“This work, “Pure Evil”, is now in two of my art photography series: ‘Colour-Dominance’, and originally in ‘Ethereal Dreams and Nightmares’. It fits in too well with the ‘Colour-Dominance’ series to leave it out. Plus, I wanted to unofficially name a specific colour (specific Hex Color #); and thus, I do here by name Hex Color Code #D31C34 is “PURE EVIL”!”

“The other reason that this Smoke Art Photography artwork is titled, “Pure Evil,” is because the Demonic Pareidolia Face, just below-dead-center in this work is one of the most EVIL faces ever to appear in any of my Smoke Art or Fire Portraits images.”

12 Years Blogging

Yeah, I was trying to remember the other day, “How long have I been blogging?”

Well, WordPress supplied the answer today when they sent me the anniversary notification — 12 Years.

Okey Dokey.

If only they paid dividends to us content providers, as we are the only reason they are in business. But hey, that’s not how things work for us.

At least we have a place to publish our work, so there…………..

No, No Really, you are WAY TOO ABSTRACT for Us!

Well, there it is folks, I have another photograph in the GETTY IMAGES Collection! Amazing isn’t it.

My GettyImages Link:

NAWFAL @ GETTY IMAGES


LONG AGO…

I approached Getty Images and Corbis, and both told me that my photography was too ABSTRACT for them.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy that some of my photographs are appreciated by Getty Images and that they have approved of them for their collection. That is great.

I guess at least some of their photo editors appreciate Abstract Photography now. That is commendable and good for me.

Nevertheless, for such a long time, Getty Images, Corbis, and others, would not touch my abstract work with a ten foot pole, but now the mood must have changed.

I’ve always been very abstract and that is me.

It is good that these Premiere Stock Photography Agencies are appreciating some abstract work now.

NEW Abstract Color Field Photography Work in My Colour-Dominance Series called Vesuvius

Title: “Vesuvius”.

Creation Date: 05 February 2019.

Copyright 2019 Nawfal Johnson

All Rights Reserved.

Penang, Malaysia

———

Genre: Abstract Colour (Color) Field Photography.

———

Artist’s Note:

“This is the first work in the “Colour-Dominance” Series to have two distinct fields; although, both fields have similar colour gradations—the dark orange Vesuvius colour—it has a distinct hot magma/lava glow to it.”

———
Series Description:

“Colour-Dominance” is an Abstract Photography Series that comprises images of abstractions, and the titles reflect the dominant colour of each art piece. These works are highly influenced by, and inspired by my appreciation for Mark Rothko’s great Color Field artworks. Rothko is the second most influential artist for me in my own abstract photography artwork—Pollock is first.

Manila Palm Fruits & Storm

Title: “Manila Palm Fruits & Storm”.

Creation Date: 15 January 2019.

Series: Environmental Still Life Photography.

Series Years: 2017-2019 (On-going).

Copyright 2019 Nawfal Johnson

Photographer’s Statement:

“I actually had to take this Manila Palm Tree photograph from an open window, it provided the proper height and faced the stormy grey sky that perfectly framed the background. Fill-flash was necessary to give details to the fruits and show the green and red colours. In a shot like this, it is necessary to make the subject a little brighter than the background or the subject will blend into the background and not be very interesting—Thus, a +.5 to +1.0 fill boost was added to bring out the colours and details of the subject.”

Macro Green Soap Bubble Shadows Abstract Photography

Title: “Macro Green Soap Bubble Shadows”.

Creation Date: 15 January 2019.

Series: Environmental Still Life Photography.

Series Years: 2017-2019 (On-going).

Photographer’s Statement:

“For me, the focus of the photograph is sometimes ‘the other subject’, not what you would typically think of as the ‘main subject’. In the case of this image, the main subject was the soap bubbles. What caught my eye first, was the other subject, the geometric shadows the soap bubbles created in the green dishwashing soap. And also, the repetitive abstraction it created was interesting to me.”

ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM PHOTOGRAPHY Series:

I have over 85 Photography Series. I consider myself an Abstract Expressionism Photographist, and I have photographed in this style for 20 or more years. Believe it or not, up until just recently (mid-2018), I had not created an Abstract Expressionism Photography Series—In a way, that seems completely ludicrous to me!

Typically, all of my Abstract Expressionism photographic artworks have been designed for other photography series, so I guess I never thought there was a need for a photo series called, “Abstract Expressionism Photography”.

However, with my work titled, “Descent into Tartarus” (2018), I had no collections that were specifically appropriate for that artwork. And after searching my many series, I could not find one titled, Abstract Expressionism Photography! Therefore, that is how this series came into existence. It was a process of discovery: I discovered that I needed an “Abstract Expressionism Photography” series.

Anyone who follows my work will know that Jackson Pollock is my main artistic influence. Thus, my Abstract Expressionism Photography artworks are in the fashion of All-Over Painting, and my works are full of chaos, action, dynamic colours, and design.


Artist’s Note :

This is the kind of art I design when I can’t sleep!

Das Feuer ist außer Kontrolle Abstract Fire Photography

Title: “Das Feuer ist außer Kontrolle.”

Creation Date : 23 November 18″.

(The blog title does not accept the special German character (ß), ‘the Sharp S’ sound, character. Instead, WP replaced it with ‘ss’, which I believe is wrong. WP did something ridiculous here….strange). There is nothing I know to do to fix this, my apologies to German speakers.

Series: Abstract Fire Photography.

Imagekind Photo #: 2,438

Artist’s Note: I do not speak German, so I depended on Collins Dictionary translator, and Google Translate, to get the closest in German, to what I wanted for the title: “The Fire is out of control.”

Why did I not use English for the title? Because I didn’t want to.

Personal Note: My Grandmother was German, and spoke German fluently. However, I think that many German immigrants living in America, from the early 1900s, did not want their children and grandchildren to speak German. The reason being, because of tensions with Germany, due to WWI and WWII. It was safer for Germans in America to blend into American society as seamlessly as possible. Nevertheless, she did speak and sing songs in German at home, and I remember that very well. I only wish I had paid more attention to her speaking German.

When You Become Uninspired!

Yes, I have become rather uninspired at the moment.

I am truly having difficulty feeling good about Creating and Designing NEW Art Photography! Don’t worry, I am not alone. At some point I think that most Creative’s will reach a horrible stretch in their creative lives where the main question they ask themselves is, “Why?”

I am asking myself that question, “Why?”

☆ There must be some overwhelming drive to make an Artist keep creating new artwork. When that ‘Driving Force’ becomes stalled in space, so to speak, inertia sets in and it leads to “Why?”

I believe that Without Inspiration, an Artist will find it very difficult to honestly create artworks they are proud of, and that joy to exhibit those new artworks, fades away.

The ‘Driving Force’ will return — The Joy will Return in Time.

■ “A body at rest will remain at rest until it is acted upon by an external force!”

I believe that Physics law is true for Artists who are in a creative rut: it will take some external force to nudge them, to get the momentum and creativity rolling again.

The External Force:

  1. It could be as simple as Seeing Something with Fresh Eyes.
  2. It could be help and encouragement from a fellow Artist.
  3. It could be a supportive comment from someone who admires the Artist’s work.
  4. It could be travelling to a new environment to liven the soul.
  5. It could be a sale of the Artist’s work.
  6. It could be the prospect and looking forward to an upcoming exhibition.
  7. It could be many, many things.

☆ Positive ‘External Forces’ can have a huge positive impact on an Artist who has become uninspired, become stuck in a creative rut, or even become strangled and stressed out with bad personal news to the point that the mind is overwhelmed to the point that it cannot concentrate on being creative….it can happen…and it has happened to me—now.

I am constantly thinking of ways to get back to being my creative self, but some personal roadblocks must be cleared first, and I am one who needs Positive ‘External Forces’ when things become overwhelmingly stressful.

I have no solutions, yet, but I will, I just need time to sort things out.

I don’t know if my Art Photography truly inspires anyone — I really hope I am, or, my work is of some inspiration to someone. I would like to believe that in some small way, at least, my Art Photography has added some artistic life to the Universe’s overall artistic ocean. ~ I said that. ~

That is all for now. More Art Photography is coming soon.
