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 a room and filled it will objects at different angles/depths. I used 3 bangs to randomly control the color of the background/shapes/dots as well as randomly change the size of the dots to add some extra variability.

Below are some examples using the randomly generated colors/sizing.

    Interesting use of randomizing color. It would have been nice to see some of the size variance in the examples provided. If there is variance, I think that it would have been better to have a larger range of values that it could draw from.

    Very cool! I like the randomized color, and you could have even expanded into shapes. Perhaps creating a “module” that is made up of a base shape and polka-dots. You could scale, rotate, and recolor this to create endless new possibilities to the scene structurally and visually.

    I really like the idea behind this piece. The perspective given to the shapes is unique.
