Abstractish

2 Comments

Photos, like any other visual art form, can be abstract or have an abstract quality. Because I’ve been working almost exclusively abstract in my other mediums it’s difficult to not notice abstract compositions everywhere I look. The following works are photo clips of just some of those hard to miss compositions. Enjoy.

Abstractish  (William Bushell)

You may glimpse it as you walk by.
A curving line
a colour arc.
Shadowy shapes
made by light
or a vertical monument
of no known origin.
The roadway has some
art tales to tell
with scratchy surface
and a rich yellow mark.
A ship may offer up
a curving bow
or a line of cable
stretching down.
Have you seen the window pane
with louvered cover just to the side
a composition on it’s own
and the little group of
glass and light.
A dark dark spot
just there, on the right
drilling a hole
in the picture.
Look at all
with
eyes
anew.

I am an artist living in Victoria, BC Canada. I am primarily a painter and I dabble in photography. My subject matter is mainly abstract that is informed by landscape and the sea along with my experiences and observations. Aesthetic appreciation is the key. Art can be found all around you, from the inside of a flower to an accidental arrangement of stones and driftwood or shadows cast on a roadway.
