Abstracts have long been a staple of the visual art forms. Abstract paintings, sculpture, textile art, digital art — all serve to lure the audience into a different perspective. Even the moving arts, such as, dance tend to stray from the norms and incorporate free flowing steps that can be considered abstractions.
The Zone V Camera Club hopes to expand your mind and visions as they stage a year end photo exhibit entitled, ‘Expanded Visions’ at 2L Mega Atrium, SM Megamall on November 10 – 14, 2017.
‘Expanded Vision’ is a collection of the members foray into the psychedelic world of abstract photography. Abstraction in the world of photography is a special challenge. The work must maintain a link with the natural or objective world, a limitation not normally found nor expected from the more traditional art forms.
The success of the photographic abstract stems as much from the original subject as well the final result. It is important that the real subject be visible or discernible. Perhaps, the process may even serve to draw the audience in as they come up with their own interpretation of the art work.
Convoluted angles, motion blur either from the camera or the subject, multiple or layered images, close ups or macro photography, are just some of the more common tools of the trade.
