I’m really looking forward to showing my photographic art during the Open Studios Art Tour.
My “one man show” at Linnaea’s Cafe during the month of April was well received. My idea to create “abstract” photographic art comes from my respect of painters who created abstract and impressionistic art: Henri Matisse, Vincent van Gogh, Cezanne, Braque, Kadinsky, Mondrian, Miró and Picasso to name a few.
Abstract art uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. While I don’t create abstract art, I see it in natural objects and scenery which when isolated without a frame or border looks abstract. Many times I get the question, “What is it?” Here are 3 examples of pieces from my gallery that will be for sale . . . Did I mention that each piece is large: 30″ x 40″? I look forward to meeting you during the tour.
More of Craig’s pieces can be seen on his blog and at his San Luis Obispo studio during both weekends of ARTS Obispo’s Open Studios Art Tour.
