Gehry Waves

Okay, how about a new twist on the EMP building?  Gehry Waves!  (click on the image to make it bigger)  Three square compositions put together as a triptych.  I love triptychs and find they are helpful as a project.  I’m often suggesting triptychs to students as it will help them “see” beyond the shot they are working on and look deeper to find two more that could be presented together.  You too, should be thinking triptych.

    I like these images together. There is a rhythm from one to the other and back again.

    I had a great art teacher who would take any image submitted and turn it – looking at the image for its form, structure and such – and continue turning the image and judging it on every possible side. This allowed a different view and perspective, especially away from the obvious. As for abstracts, if the image could take his critiques from all four sides, it received great praise!

    He would do this with photographs as well. He would also typically make a Xerox copy and draw the visual shapes for design, harmony and flow.

    All in all, a great lesson in seeing beyond the obvious and to take a different view, perspective, awareness and appreciation for art and how we see and do not see. This concept has been embedded in my mind ever since.

    With your abstract images, I see the definite possibilities to turn each one and to alternate order. Using all three, you would have at least 108 different ways to position these images and have a rotating triptych if you allowed the three to be moved and turned – or even simply to turn this triptych on its own sides.

    As like my great old art teacher stated, you have a strong abstract that can stand on its own on any side. Adding the three together, you have great possibilities to view and enjoy accordingly!

    Great work JB and Gehry!!
