PE Abstract and Surreal: *KizukiTamuraInterview with *KizukiTamura
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 In my eyes, surrealism is nowadays a bit outdated, but I am still very fond of Breton, Magritte and others, who transformed the artistic standards of their time.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.

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. :]
