Geometric Abstraction – Aidan Sensiba

My inspiration for this project was Bridget Riley, whose work positions simple geometry such as lines and circles in rows or sine waves to create interesting visual fields. I did something similar, creating a dampened sine wave out of circles, open spheres and open cubes. The three states randomly choose the frequency and phase of…

Geometric Abstraction

For my geometric abstraction, I took inspiration specifically from Thomas Downing and his work using dots. Specifically I drew inspiration from his inclusion of geometric shapes forming other larger geometric shapes. Kind of like this:   Now for mine, i particularly enjoyed the offset 3d skewed vision that the open cylinder and open cube gave…

Kyria Nelson – Geometric Abstraction

When going through the suggested inspirations, one artist in particular stood out to me – Zanis Waldheims. I loved his artworks which featured series of similar shapes with simple gradients, and found them incredibly soothing to look at. I set out to create a similar series of shapes with a gentle gradient. I chose circles because…

Thai Dao – Geometric Abstraction

Looking at Josef Albers’ works, I noticed the use of squares and rectangles, layered on top of each other on a plane to create illusion of depth. The use of color for each individual shape usually follow the “color wheel” principles: Sometimes Mr. Albers used different shades of the same primary color, sometimes he used the…

Minh-Chau Doan Geometric Abstraction

My Geometric Abstraction inspiration was Ilya Bolotowsky. From his works, I liked that he used a shape to frame his pieces (most commonly, a square or circle). I was inspired by his constraint of using rigid shapes (rectangles, lines) inside the frame to create a “pattern” almost. I created a frame (rotated square) and shapes (rectangles…

Catherine Roberts – Geometric Abstraction

I was inspired by Sonia Delaunay’s  “Rythmes Colores” collection for my geometric abstraction. I love the simplicity of her artwork and how the colors flow seamlessly from one circle to the next. My favorite pieces were the ones with her circles stacked on top of each other. The smaller circles inside the larger circle made the…

Han Liu Geometric Abstraction

This work is inspired by the works of Piet Mondrian, Thomas Downing and Josef Albers, I created a squre travelling pattern (also can be adjusted to any rectangle) for simple geometric shapes in Max, and I added random change of scale synchoronized with color. The  three bangs each corresponds to travelling pattern, scale change and color change….

Saul Woolf’s Geometric Abstraction

When I first started this project, I had no idea inspiration piece was animated. Zanis Waldheims animation was a bit too complex to recreate, but my attempt came out better than I’d hoped. The hold program would have been near impossible without patches. The body of the program (shown above) has two different kinds patches…

Isaiah Fleischer – Assignment 2, Geometric Abstraction

Isaiah Fleischer – Geometric Abstraction Inspired By: Dulles (Capital)  by Sarah Morris I saw many interesting pieces while I was browsing through the Artist Inspiration page on the Canvas site, but Dulles (Capital) by Sarah Morris stood out. The illusion of 3D space represented only with rectangles and an abundance of white space appealed to…

Noah Hillman – Geometric Abstraction

For my geometric inspiration patch, I was inspired by Yayoi Kusama who uses a 3-dimensional space filled with bulbous objects decorated with small circular accents. She uses very rich singular colors for the different objects and polka dots, Some of her pieces are below: In order to convey the 3-dimensional aspect of her work I built…
