Existential Ambiguity

 

This post is dedicated to Na Rysunku… an artist I would call “Post Explanationist”. Instead of drawing something, he something draws.

I have done that here. I don’t know what I was trying to draw. As a matter of fact, I really don’t know if I was trying at all. It just happened. I have taken it one step further, however. I have found that a 90 degree clockwise rotation radically changes the character of the drawing.

I have named each iteration according to my own personal interpretation. Please scroll no further until you come up with your own one-word impression for each drawing.

After you have done that, see how you match up to my one-word impressions. To do this, scroll down now.

Based on a Real Gecko

 

     I made the stereotypical shape of the gecko and then used my imagination on the color. This may or may not be an exact representation of a real gecko. One thing we can be sure of is that God loves variety. So if this is not a presently existing gecko species, who is to say that it never existed, or that it will not exist in the future?

   Here is a bunch of pictures of geckos. See if you can match up my version to an actual gecko!

Perceptual Precept

 

What is this? What do you see? What is your first impression? What, exactly, is going on here? What do you say about playing a little game? Just describe what you see or feel. It can be an entire paragraph, or one single word. Just respond with something, please.

There is no “right” or “wrong” answer. There is only an answer. One answer.  Yours.

Siamese Fighting Fish!

 

This art is the final result of my first foray into the wonderful world of computer graphics. It was 1997 and it was created while messing around on the computer in my Design class. This is also, quite possibly, the first time I ever scanned anything.

I believe it started out as a colored pencil drawing, and after a lot of computerized manipulation, morphed into what you see here. I actually believe that the original drawing was wildly different from this final draft. (I lost the original)

The Siamese Fighting Fish is officially called the Betta. Go here to be amazed by the beauty of these creatures! Photos of Betta. 

I have a Betta and his name is Ruby and he is blue.
