PE Abstract and Surreal: *KizukiTamuraInterview with *KizukiTamura
:iconkizukitamura:
How would you explain the concept of abstraction/surrealism to someone who has never heard of it before?
Surrealism refers to certain definite codes rooted in psychoanalysis, philosophy etc. and favours associative, non-logical processes like in dreams or automatic writing. Whereas abstraction is rather a personal vision of reality at a given time. In photography, abstraction often leads to a poetic approach, but also gives the opportunity of experimenting.

 What inspires you to use the concept of abstraction/surrealism for your artwork?
 
As a matter of fact, I work rather with abstraction than with surrealism. In my eyes, surrealism is nowadays a bit outdated, but I am still very fond of Breton, Magritte and others, who transformed the artistic standards of their time.
In my work I do not aim at abstraction for abstractio
Daily Deviation Report: December 2012This is the first Daily Deviation report that I have composed, so I apologise in advance if it is a little rough around the edges. Nonetheless, what follows is a comprehensive feature of the Daily Deviations that I featured during the month of December 2012. All of these images caught my eye in some way; whether it be through technical perfection, compositional intrigue, or the concept within. I am proud to present these works, and I applaud the relevant artists for their dedication and inspiration.

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-12-11
Throughout a gallery that displays a keen eye for geometric abstraction, Perfect Match by *Einsilbig stands out as a fine example of the style. ( Suggested by tiganusi and Featured by arctoa )
:iconmkemaster:
Now any quick observer of this piece would simply stare for a few minutes and just walk away. It is very simple, and quite silent. That is what I first thought about it, what is so special? I asked myself at first, I even questioned why this would be granted a Daily Deviation.

But after a longer inspection I discovered I was quite wrong, the longer I stared at this the more louder the music gets. I feel a certain melody speaking to me when I look at that Red spaces, I start to picture it in multiple ways.

The red spaces, their edges very much resembling the edge of the universe and drops everything ahead into the pit of white infinity. It is just emotional piece more than a technical Awe.

This stimulates different pictures in different minds, and some minds just fail to see its Abstract beauty.

Well Done. And Congratulation on the DD!

:icondawnofnssd:
well, i don't know what's going on here. i dig that shadow on the red along the white, it's pretty cool.

Now this is the story all about how
My life got flipped, turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-air
In west Philadelphia born and raised
On the playground where I spent most of my days
Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool
And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys, they were up to no good
Started making trouble in my neighbourhood
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
And said "100 Word Minimall"
What do you think?

Don't listen to all the derogatory comments. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder", they say. I don't quite understand the artistic value of this piece, but I very much do understand the time and effort that went into it. Bravo, and congratulations on the DD! :clap:

Funny how such art always generates this kind of controversy :D

To understand the value of such work, I recommend to set out and try to capture an eye-pleasing picture based only on colours and simple shapes. This helps to realise how much skill it takes to work with such basic elements and create a harmonic composition.

As I see it, your work displays the foundations of art, the elemental skills which many artists of other domains rely on. That's why I think this DD is important, it presents the value of this field of art, although I wouldn't have given it to this particular deviation. I like some others from your gallery more, but that's just a matter of taste ;)

Wow. So some thing me, a 13yr old, could of done got a DD, and a lovely lovely artist such as some one else was passed up. This is fucked up. I'm sorry but does any one know photo manip and textures? I do, Just searched red textures, put a weird part of a T white on it and just called it prefect.
I am sorry I would of liked this if:
A. had meaning
B. Had some thing other then just a paper plus in the corner
C. Had some type of creativity that was some thing.
This may seem harsh but this bummed my day thinking how every thing is considered art "OMG I MADE A WHITE THING ON THIS RED THING AND I GOT A DD" but when i work my ass on trying anatomny i get the "you tried star" not sure what is this site coming to or what this world is becoming.

Firstly, this is a photograph.

Secondly, I am the CV for abstract and surreal photography. Therefore, it makes sense for me to feature abstract and surreal work. As you appear to prefer portraiture, I would recommend that you stick to the relevant categories. Abstraction is, by definition, abstract. Non-figurative. Regularly unrecognisable. :]

This isn't abstraction? I recommend you look at the life and works of world-famous artists like Rothko, Mondrain, and Malevich: you'll find they were creating work in a similar style decades ago. I'd also direct you to look at geometric wall frescoes that have been prevalent throughout recorded history. :]

Whats with all the hate on this dev. Just because it has a DD :o Seriously guys, If you have a problem take it up with the suggester. Don't bash the artist. If you don't have something nice to say don't say it at all, it's as simple as that. (Also It's not a critique if all your doing is complaining about the DD -_-)

I'm gonna be honest, and it's extremely rare for me to say anything like this, but even though this is technically art it doesn't deserve Daily Deviation
This is a simple photograph of a wall
I've used :devart: for years and it's always been the same thing, if you sumbit a photo of a piece of paper you took a greenish-yellow, bloody, nutty, giant **** on most people will spoonfeed you comments and represent the "simple art is the best" statement
This isn't quality art, and it never will be in any way, shape or form :iconsomethingstinksplz:

I have to agree. I didn't think some thing i could of easily done would get a DD where i bust my ass on trying to do some thing extravagant. Not saying my art is better, but you can see that my art atleast has SOME THING. This is a disapointment.
