Default New Abstract Project

I spent a year researching and visiting areas for a project on developing abstract art and photographic editing techniques. I visited London,Catalonia,Northern Italy and many areas of my native Ireland, I wanted to determine if photographic editing technology could weld with abstract imagery to produce meaningful and visually appealing art. I have now completed the technical element and I am now in the process of presenting the work for critique and public viewing. I have teamed up with Art Gallery UK who are commercially representing the final works - I would welcome feed back on the works and if you like please pass on details to your friends\or potential interested contacts. Many thanks - Marty Cullenwww.artgallery.co.uk/artist/marty_cullen

Very interesting. I note that most of the works are extremely abstract, but your mode of thinking is rooted in the concrete. I think I'd enjoy them more if they didn't come with titles and an accompanying essay that make your interpretation too unambiguous.

To use a couple of my favorite works as examples, I think Catalonia is a good title and the accompanying essay hits the right notes. But Dirty Old Town has kind of a leaden title and the essay didn't contribute to my appreciation or understanding of the work.

This is just my two cents. Obviously abstract art will hit everyone in a slightly different way.

thanks for taking time out to check site John, I am in the situation of gallery requirements versus my own notion that abstracts should be totally untitled and left for viewing, this is my first foray into the genre so a learning curve will no doubt evolve. I do vey much apreciate critiques though, not much sense going public without them.
