More Artists

Three blog posts in one day?! I know...I'm making up for lost time (I think). These artists use geometric patterns in their work, and I find it amusing, inspiring, and curious. I found them via Joanne Mattera's blog

Composition 69 by Julie Karabenick

The Primrose Path by Steven Alexander

Why do I find such things interesting? The color placement, mostly. The way the colors interact. The ways the shapes interact. It's not always the idea behind a painting that makes it fascinating to me. In fact, it is rarely the subject of a painting that I find interesting, but the subliminal inferrations (yes, I just invented a word) and the techniques the artist used to depict the subject.
