This is really such a great piece. The contrast between the two and how they balance through imbalances; the compressed weight and solidity of the cold, and the more spread out looseness of the hot. Lovely negative space, too.
being Dutch, orange obviously appeals to me as my national colour LOL but my favourite colour is blue. in one piece you've appealed totally to my visual aesthetic.
i find this piece INCREDIBLY vibrant. not just with the colours, but with the very minimal style of photography that allows one to clearly focus on each subject in each section. i'm really digging the framing (which by the way, i've noticed you're very innovative with, which really thrills me). the larger space given to the orange allowing for the branches (?) to fit properly into the composition without being cut off is lovely. the shadows of each object in the space makes it look like they're moving towards each other.
i'm finding it hard to not fav everything i'm commenting on lol
another lovely piece of work from you. i hope you don't mind that i'm not really commenting on your traditional art. i'm not really qualified you know? besides, your photography and photo manips will keep me busy for a while!
wat, nur mit der camera die unterschiedlichen farben hinbekommen?
manchmal isses schon erstaunlich, was die kamera mitn Farben anstellt, huh
klasse, mir gefällt die Schlichtheit und die "symmetrische" anordnung besonders!
gorgeous contrast!!! i love the colours! your work never ceases to amaze me!! i love looking at your work... you have such a one-of-a-kind style. such simple, sleek lines...clean and very professional! the clarity always impresses me...beautiful!!
i can almost imagine sitting next to you and hearing the
clicking and whirring sounds going on in your head as
you calculate the 'what ifs' and possilities of something
it's probably annoying! heh.
inventive as always M, as well as visually stimulating.
Did you ever see someone's submission and think "Darn! I wish I would have thought of this." WELL this is definately one of them! WOW....this is just so eye-catching. The way you put this together and presented it is just wonderful. The colors....WOW. Beautiful...
It's really successful here how you've represented Hot without a lot of "hot cliches" that would come so easily. There's no glow, no white (or tonal brightness above about 50%), no distortion, almost no obvious cue at all except the orange itself and the contrast with Cold. (And there's even the contrary element of shadows up there, which don't foul us up at all. And the Hot is actually more DIM than the cold too...)
Honestly, I think you've pulled this off so well by getting almost down into particle symbolism - one lone "inert" particle below, many frenzied active particles above, ice vs. steam. Hanging above vs. set down below adds to this. Taking up more space adds to this. The semi-chaotic arrangement above adds to this. Being -above- adds to this.
There are a couple of further interesting dimensions too. The Hot looks drastically more organic, while of course Cold looks more lifeless, POST-life... It's also interesting as a two panel arrangement - Hot gets its dominance in amount of space and primary position, but then Cold gets its own importance by being particle-ularly bigger, more grounded and being the second of the two moments.
And then there's a whole "left field" dimension of the whole composition being potentially as much about electricity hot as heat hot. There's a lot of voltage impression up there too - something about all your particles here, below somewhat but especially above, make us feel we should NOT touch these, the ambiguity above between organic and electric.
I would be fascinated to know which came first, the title or the work, because that simplest three-word title adds an order of magnitude to this composition.
You take the most amazing objects and make such wonderful art with them. That marble (I think its a marble!) is awesome, its imperfections are what make it so great. The top plant like artifact (I know what it is called but can't seem to remember, you get that at like Z Gallarie or Crate and Barrel I think!) has nice a nice creamy orange tone that I love, plus the catch on the bulbs is nice too. Without that catch it would make the top part boring I think. Good work!
Man!! This is so incredible. I love simple stuff and this is SO simple, yet so creative and clean. The color stuff is amazing. Great GREAT work. I'm just a digi-artists.. I really need to get into this photography stuff so I can create (attempt to) pieces like this. What a great job. the color....so god damn pure!! Wow! Great stuff.
Interpretation/Review: Fire and Ice, where ones need to stored up their food for a long time in ice, and cook it up for a meal in fire. One can't survive without the other, and they are friends dispite the relation of being combind.
Pros/Cons/Suggestions: Like the colors, very nice, like the experimentation as to acheving the certain things you want. Good work.
I really like this, but I don't buy that orange very much. Still it's very interesting, one is warm one is cold, one is connected one is alone...I think you should enlarge the cold picture there, it's a bit too small
is there any other meaning you have to try different colors?
