    Personal artwork - updated 10/08/2008!

    Hello,

    I'd like to show a few pictures that I did as kind of concepts for my personal ideas. I think about them more as "meaningless" artwork but I use them to explore themes that come to my head. They all are somehow connected. Maybe one day they'll grow into something more. Anyway, I hope You'll enjoy these!

    Edit 26/02/2008: I've just updated the thread with new works.

    Edit 09/03/2008: I added one new pic at the end of the thread.

    Edit 10/08/2008: new pic at the end of the thread.

    C & C welcome!

    I love the third image. It really appeals to my personal tastes in that it’s a single image that conjures up many different emotions and atmospheres. It initially appears sinister yet there are undertones of comradeship or even morning. Fantastic.

    Really outstanding. I love the 2nd and third especially. Only the last one is average. Great stuff!

    Great stuff!
    The delicate line work in the first one does it for me, as well as the layering of the colors. Beautiful pieces.

    Thank You all for comments, they really encourage me for further work!

    David Kassan & Marks: The first picture (and it's similar with all others) was started with ink and acrylics on paper, then scanned and detailed in Painter and Photoshop. I prefer digital tools to work on details but I find it more fun to start in traditional way. So the foreground in first pic has a lot of stuff added in Painter (mainly grass on right side). Also, the whole sky was done digitally, on paper I left it simply white.

    Well done with these, must agree with most people's post i read, the third image in the middle when i looked at it brought up so much emotion, personally it gives me images of a POW working on a rial road.... Keep up this kind of stuff i say, to look at a painting and actually get a feeling from it is what makes me enjoy browsing these forums and making my own art.... (mind you i am no where as good as you)... keep it up!

    Very nice. That's great ! I was going to guess Painter to start with.

    Thanks again

    awooldri: forgive me for not understanding but could You explain a bit more what You mean by "POW working on a rial road"? Do You mean rail road perhaps?

    Walkalong: Soviet union kind of landscape is indeed a huge inspiration for me. First picture is based on a landscape that You can see in my hometown in Poland in late autumn (You need to walk around a bit to find it though, it's not like whole city looks like that). Somehow, this type of view is very appealing to me

    That first piece is great. It breaks so many conventional rules of composition but works none the less.

    I really like your work here.
    As others've said the style is really interesting and quite unique. They've got a certain mood in them, which I love.
    My favourite pieces are the first, and those in the fourth row down.
    I was even inspired to try to achieve a similar effect.

    Again, really nice work. I'd like to see more like this.

    Beautiful work, love the vibes in these.
    First is my favourite, but the third image is arguably your best here.
    I get the image of a crowd dancing or moving, I love the way only your markmaking seems to tell me this.
    Black and whites are great too.
    Don't be too quick to discard these as "meaningless" - I think you could make a wonderful series of illustrations using the style of the first and third and b&w images.
    Lovely work, have 5.

    I'm finding myself unable to stop looking at the fourth image. Initially I am captivated by the central frame, focusing there, and then I find myself walking up toward this figure on the landscape, getting closer and closer through the other frames in sequence. It's starting to creep me out, but in a good way.

    Very impressive style, the ambience of the first one is very interesting.

    Hope you don`t get me wrong, but me, I would never dare to call your work "meaningless" so this, aside from being rude and unfounded, also would imply that almost anything that (aside from pure naturalistic work) had been painted/draw/sculptured during at least the last 150 years would have to be called just meaningless too and therefore senseless. For example the second one, which is deeply touching me, if that would be meaningless, the whole expressionistic work would be either. Or your linework, if that would be meaningless, what about the work of Cy Twombly.

    In general: I have to disagree: Your work is anything else than meaningless. It is great. The last piece (wolf) maybe does not have the quality of the others, so it is a bit wavering and feels like you would have forced it into a figurative direction to not receive a pure abstract piece. Don`t be afraid to appear "abstract" just cause the hype says naturalism. I am aware, that my comment does sound maybe cocky, but I truly think that your work is anything else than meaningless, it is outstanding and weighty.

    I think there is a fantastic sense of atmosphere in these. Images don't need to depict action or narrative to be meaningful. Obviously from the comments these resonate with many of us. I do think the close ups of the faces and the dog are not as strong as the landscapes though.

    Thanks for comments and opinions!

    I perhaps used wrong word when I used "meaningless". What I had in mind was that I wasn't going to tell any specific story or action. I wanted to get across a certain mood or feel but not in very narrative way. I have an idea, I do it and do not think much about the "history" behind it.

    So I definitely agree with You guys that depicting narrative and action is not a necessity!

    I also agree that the wolf is "not there yet" but it was worse It's second iteration and I thought I would post it. But if I get any better idea on how to change it I'll do it.

    Azospin: I really appreciate all what You wrote. As for "abstract" direction I would love to go more into this direction, it's just years of figurative work, both personal and commercial gave me some bad habits and I just need to work more. I personally perceive good abstract work to be much harder to do then figurative one.


    BTW: I didn't know Cy Twombly before, he really is incredible!

    I really love love love the railroad picture. Great colors, great setting and just the feeling it has is amazing. I also really dig the hard black lines you use to define figures in the 3rd picture taking the colors that I guess you put down in acrylics first, loosely. Good job man, really inspiring!

    new pic - Red Forest

    Gatts: thanks for all compliments!

    Here's one more pic. Started as acrylics but I wasn't satisfied with it and somehow couldn't finish it in any way so I moved it to painter. Acrylics parts are still visible in some places.

    Hi,

    To keep things short: Another landscape inspired by the concept of "Roadside Picnic's" Zone and Exclusion Zone around Chernobyl NPP. This time - a winter version Technique as usual - acrylics and Painter (I just discovered the amazing Sargent brush!)
