Expressionism

Abstract Light Streaks #355

Title:  “Abstract Light Streaks #355”.

Series:  ABSTRACT LIGHT STREAKS.   Series Years:  2015 – 2017.   This is my largest photography series with nearly 400 photographs in the collection.  These photographs are created from nighttime lights in Penang, Malaysia.

—————

Influence:  I am highly influenced by my favorite artist, Paul Jackson Pollock (January 28, 1912 – August 11, 1956), an Abstract Expressionism Painter, some researchers call his style Fractal Expressionism:  he was an important and influential member of the New York School of Abstract Expressionism of  the 1950s – 60s.  I take the Abstract (Fractal) Expressionism concept and translate it into abstract photographic art pieces.  Being left-handed, I’ve always been attracted to ambidextrous and mirrored visuals, and I create many ambidextrous visuals—all things equal on the left and right hand sides.

** A Note:

As you can see, when reading the Artwork Description, this is a Mixed Media art piece. Well, to be quite honest, as I always try to be with everyone, I am not exactly choosing the medium for which the individual art pieces are created: The amount of various types of art supplies I have, is what decides what is used for each new art piece.  That is just the way it is for me right now, but I have hope that things change for the better. 🙂

I want to wish you a good day and hope that you take something positive and energetic away with you, from my photography/art-blog; and that it encourages creativity inside of you.

ARTIFICIAL VISUAL INTELLIGENCE” Series, by NAWFAL JOHNSON, and the Title is: “Artificial Visual Intelligence, No 1, Edit B”

The “ARTIFICIAL VISUAL INTELLIGENCE” (AVI) SERIES.

The link to my IMAGEKIND Sales Gallery for the “ARTIFICIAL VISUAL INTELLIGENCE”, and this Photograph, is: http://www.imagekind.com/Artificial-Visual-Intelligence-No-1-Edit-B_art?imid=44a46981-374e-420e-9475-2a74a3ec158a

Photograph Information:
This image is from the “ARTIFICIAL VISUAL INTELLIGENCE” Series, by NAWFAL JOHNSON, and the Title is: “Artificial Visual Intelligence, No.1, Edit B.”
Art Genres: Abstract Expressionism Photography; Modernism; and, Expressionism.
Beginning Creation Date for the AVI Series: 12 March 2014.

AVI Description:
This is not so much a description, rather, it is a question asked: What would it be like to see only in Abstract Expressionism? It may seem like heaven to the die-hard Abstract Expressionists; however, it may prove difficult when it comes time to do the normal things that people do during a normal day. However, it would be possible to create robots that only see in Abstract Expressionism. When the robots look at every single different scene in nature, or every person, the image comes up as an Abstract Expressionistic scene. Perhaps, we could plug into the eyes of these robots and see what they see as they look around. It would be like watching an Abstract Expressionistic movie. The images in this series are still images, I imagine, from one of these Abstract Expressionistic movies.

Photograph Information:
THE 49-PROJECT, by NAWFAL JOHNSON, and the Title is: “#46 of 49” .
Genres: Abstract Expressionism Photography; Modernism; Expressionism.
Creation Date: 2 March 2014.

The Motivation for this Project: On 2 March 2014, I turned 49 years old. In the past, I have done a 45-PROJECT, and a 48-PROJECT. Basically, I do a project with the number of art photographs matching my new age. In this case, it was THE 49-PROJECT. Therefore, that was the motivation for doing this project, and I hope to continue this tradition. Each new year is more of a challenge because the project gets harder by one additional photograph: Nevertheless, it is always good to challenge ones’ self.

Time Limit to Finish ALL 49 Photographs = 4-Hours!
Actual Time to Finish ALL 49 Photographs = 3-Hours & 58 Minutes!

A Note: I think “#25 of 49” will be the last image from THE 49-PROJECT, that I load up today: I am going considerably BONKERS with the uploading. I get that way if I do the same tasks over and over again. I start to lose track of the steps I need to do for a task and then things go wild! Not wild in a good way, but, wild in a; “Oh $hit! I can’t believe I did that!”, way. So, it is best that I stop uploading for now, at least stop uploading the project images…maybe I’ll upload something totally different. 🙂
