This artwork combines the natural beauty of nature, particularly plants, and digital manipulation techniques to give it a more stylized, abstract aesthetic. The use of grays, black, and white, creates an elegant piece. Multiples points of interest are created through the use of a light blue as a means of accentuation. The piece has a sense of movement, but it is elegant, reposed, and balanced.
Abstract realism, a contradiction in terms, is what most closely resembles what I am aiming to achieve with the photograph. Through the use of digital photographs, and techniques such as overlaying of geometric figures, multiple exposure, or focusing on areas of the photograph that have a distinctly abstract aesthetic, an abstract artwork is created. However, the realistic elements used to create the artwork are still clearly visible and in most cases, recognizable. Thus, it uses realistic elements in an abstract way.
