AESTHETICS / PSYCHOLOGY
Aesthetic pleasure is an extremely valuable aspect to my artwork and all artwork I take inspiration from. I've recently explored different forms of digital media, manipulating aspects of the natural world and enhancing the aesthetic qualities found in our natural surroundings.
The psychological research that I've carried out has accompanied this form of media and aided all end points in these works, giving reason behind every artistic component of these pieces. The pieces I've created attempt to explore components of artwork that are picked up during subconscious visualisation and inevitably attract the naked eye. The main area of focus within this study was to create an aesthetic, artistic experience, rather than fixating on artistic representations and conceptualisation, in the form of both still images, as well as short psychedelic animations.
These images combine double exposure imaging and digital alterations to form surreal compositions of simple plant structures. Dispersion, depth and colour in particular were explored to construct desirable outcomes.
