Tuna Salad

I found the works of Kazimir Malevich to be a refreshing change from the politically entrenched works of the Dada and Surrealism movements. Therefore I chose to pattern my work off of some of his paintings. This digital painting is an exploration of the mimetic process in which I sought to unravel the threads of visual discourse by creating a conversation between color and shape. Further, it is an investigation of the feelings produced by the act of mark-making which delves into the connectedness of the real and the abstract. There exists a strange force that attempts to put forms into place -- reproducing the memes of past artistic eras. Surely you have felt it too but chaos permeates everything that the mind creates. In the synaptic realm, objects d'art are pure reproductions of the imaginations of the mind -- a mind that frees the chaos as an organism expels its own waste. In the physical realm, art objects are a pale representation of the vivid imagination.
