I might be crazy, but I have been tempted to host a second meme…usually thinking about it in those small hours of the night when all sorts of strange ideas come to mind. I say I might be crazy, because already I am stretched for time…but… I love making art and I love memes. I will try to keep it simple. I intend to do only one image as my contribution each week, unlike Mandarin Orange Monday when I always allow myself to be carried away and do many images – I have to admit, many more than I end up posting. So this will be a test for me.. can I be disciplined enough to do one pic only a week? So what is the meme?
THE RULES? Simply keep it geometric, using circles, squares, rectangles, triangles and ovals – lines and or shapes .You can mix them into one artwork, or simply keep to all angular or all curved shapes. They can be black and white, monochrome, or multicoloured. It can be any kind of ART- Digital Art, Painting, Mixed Media, Drawing, Sculpture, Fibre Art, etc. And most importantly, it must be your own original work. For the time being, mine will be Digital..but soon I will be painting too. My easel is sitting there ready to be used in the sunroom (my studio is too dark for painting). At the moment the easel displays my grandson’s paintings. Soon we will have to share! My contribution this week will be my new Geometric Friday logo – showing you the processes I used to make it.
Artists who might inspire you?
Cubist artists e.g. Picasso, Braque, Gris
De Stijl artists, designers and architects e.g. Mondrian, Van Doesburg and Reitveld.
The Bauhaus – Both the building itself and the designer/artists
The Bauhaus by Walter Gropius
Farnsworth House by Mies Van der Rohe
Of course there are lots of other artists, designers and architects influenced by these works even today. You can be one of them:)
My pics for Geometric Friday #1 show how I arrived at the GF logo. I used Photoshop and mostly used Transform (perspective) tool and colour Fill.
