At the simplest level; I was trying to create image that itself asked the question am I art. Yes there is something there. You need to dim the lights get up close and look at at an angle. You would be surprised what you see.

You might like to guess what you see; a conceptual artist might work that out very quickly!

Thus far, my "conceptual" pieces are a bit more direct or non-cryptic...

Definition:
"Game, set, match". (sports, tennis) An expression commonly used at the conclusion of a tennis match to indicate that a competitor has won. (idiomatic, by extension) An expression indicating finality, announcing that a series of events—usually involving some form of rivalry—has reached a conclusion.

The forbidden fruit

Wall Art

A single, shiny dark red apple as symbol for enticement. Partly posterized photo. Well, this is an awesome apple. Of course we can spoil it with stories, plenty of them exist. If you don't like the story of Snow White, you can choose the biblical one. Though the forbidden fruit in the Book of Genesis is not identified, popular Christian tradition holds that it was an apple. The unnamed fruit of Eden thus became an apple and as a result, also a symbol for knowledge, immortality, temptation, the fall of man and sin. You can have whatever story you like, I'll eat this apple.

I like to photograph sunburst that look like a bright star and shining over a dark area. Wandering through Ottawa City (Ontario) streets, I was ready to catch the sunlight light coming from behind the columns of a historic arch, when I noticed this lady walking in that direction. I waited for her to come to the right spot and got the picture. She was looking like she was following a star - her star... thus the title. I also made my image as a digital painting for a more vibrant and maybe mysterious and a little surrealistic look and feel. Of course, this is also part of my light and dark series, made in the day of the Fine Art America challenge with the theme "after dark", because after dark, the light is always brighter, right?
* I made this image having in mid the theme "After Dark" given in a challenge at Fine Art America.

At the very beginning of the shut down, 2020, I was angry and frustrated (like most, I guess). I took some black paint and wet the paper and let out my frustrations. After it dried, I took red paint and just made splatter. I think the anger I was trying to convey shows through?

This is a digital painting of a photo from my archives and initially, I made it for the concept of a (dangerous) storm.
I photographed this huge container truck driving in rainstorm on the Trans Labrador Highway, while myself was on the passenger seat in our car in motion. Difficult and dangerous weather to be on the road in this remote region of northeastern Canada, with low visibility, blowing wind and wet slippery pavement.

* However, since it's a container truck, I found it good for the FAA challenge with the theme "Containers", and also, since I took the photo from the inside of the car, I also posted it to the "Inside Out" themed group :)

A multipurpose image :)

I created this surrealistic type of image to symbolize my feelings about Spain, while visiting this country. I photographed the bull while driving on the country roads in Catalonia (Catalunya), and superimposed it on a landscape with a castle ruin on top, that happened to be at sunset time. I think that the Spanish colors red and yellow, plus the orange and black give the perfect feeling for the place.

"After the dark" was the theme/concept of one of the FAA challenges, and even though it was only for one image, I created several, because I loved the subject.
I photographed this covered bridge in the rural area of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, just at the time when two bike riders were passing through and going on the other side into the light. It can be called Light at the end of the tunnel, or light after dark...

Winter Flowers by Martha Tilston contains the following line 'The great thing about winter flowers is they look alive when they're long gone' So that underlying theme here is what in you life has long gone but you maybe have not realise it yet. I could be to do with love, grief or even have a spiritual element.

The image could be lovers; a cross or even just two fading roses.

Ephemeral

I took this photo on a beach in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, in a very quick panning, capturing the flying sanderling birds in the foreground, while a kid was playing with the sand and water in the background. It's a conceptual image suggesting the ephemeral things passing through our life, including the time and age...

An imagined depiction of crossing over to "life after life". The concept is depicted by a path to a bridge where the transition begins. The transformation of the soul from the physical body as it departs the restraints of the physical world continues on as it is guided by a white light into the next realm of existence. The perceived horizon is full of beauty and wonderment. The mystery of what lies ahead is the beginning of a new journey into enlightenment.

The original concept was to create a bit of a mystery. To make the viewer think and wonder about what lies beyond the door. But I believe it also can symbolize one moving from a bad place, perhaps depression or sadness, to a better state of mind.

I added a spiritual element to an image of my upright piano. Who knows if there's a spiritual connection or not through the things we love and what inspires us. Perhaps we are never truly alone when Love is the conduit that connects us to the cosmos.

I have a fascination with dead and dying leaves. Since I'm in the autumn of my life, I appreciate those things that have gone on before me. I named it "Death Depending" partly because "Pend" in Latin means "to hang", so this dying, basically dead leaf is still hanging on to SOMETHING, if not to life.

I'm not sure I fully understand the meaning of conceptual art... but anyway hopefully this fits.

This fanciful fish is one I call the Lavender Mint Sea Trout and is distinguished by his bright mint green markings and purple spots on his lavender skin. He spends his time swimming in the icy cold northern seas eating the glowing mint green plankton which gives him his green colors. This species is so rare as to be non existent except in my imagination and now you can have him on your wall!

Simplicity.. the concept is the title working in tandem with a square to create a piece of conceptual art..

as opposed to dots candy…

Or maybe this one fits the genre better? But honestly sometimes I don't get the concept until after the art is finished as it was with this piece.

A glitch art piece representing a fantastical visual of what gravity looks like with bright green and white lights and the trails of movement they leave showing the downward gravitational pull giving weight to their energy on a pitch black background with the word "Gravity..." in an edgy white font. The green color gives this piece the feeling of looking through infrared night vision lenses and I liked it best in a square format.

Shelli, I would call it more an abstract or non-objective work than conceptual.

Thank you Ken.

What exactly is conceptual art? I googled it but the answers were as clear as mud to me. LOL

 

Ken Krug

Shelli, conceptual art is more the idea than the craft or creating of a work. I thought easiest illustrated by example as mentioned earlier, by Duchamp’s “Fountain”, which you might be familiar with, and the banana taped to a wall and the like.

I see more merit in Duchamp’s “Fountain” than a banana taped to a wall type of thing, it at least was a creative thought/idea, turning a urinal upside-down and calling it a fountain.. and some might say literally turning the art world upside-down, at the time novel, but I don’t know, wasn’t there novel stuff like that before? Anyway that’s how it went in the art world.

The banana taped to a wall to me didn’t reach that level of creativity. Images having a concept or theme, don’t make them conceptual art per se.

Shelli Fitzpatrick; In many sense each individual needs to come to their own decision. The shortest definition would be ' The concept takes precedence over everything else'

Youtube might be more helpful than google.

But a reminder this is an image thread.
