from glacier to sea by zeruch from glacier to sea by zeruch
Probably not one of the most original works I have done, but I was so fixated on the cluster of basic geometric forms I started with, I could not let go of this (I came back to it several times over several years).

Paint and ink on bristol + digital

I like this! It looks digital. Makes me think of technology.

It is partially digital.  I went through a long phase where I created geometric primitives using software, then post-processed along with textures and paint layers done analog.  It's a time intensive process, but the results can be fun and unexpectedly rewarding.

I think it's a good thing to sometimes step back and allow yourself to appreciate the basic elements of art. Sometimes working on a composition of cubes is just what the doctor ordered. I find beauty in a handful of cubes.

Great work. I think the background is too desaturated and/or too empty, though. For this reason, I think this piece lacks the intensity and complexity of many of your other works. The foreground and the background don't seem to work well together colouristically, whereas it is the interesting interplay of colour that usually attracts me so much to your work.


Also, the composition seems a little awkward. I think the top and bottom should have been cropped more, or not at all. Also, that area of empty space on the right doesn't seem to add anything. I think that it too should have either been considerably extended or eradicated altogether.

Still, those are fairly minor criticisms, and overall, it's a very good piece.

this is really different from your usual work... i really love it though. the colors are extremely bold and against the tanish background... they really pop... this is a really nice piece visually. nice work.

this makes me thirsty. i should entertain asking for a print just so it may inspire a desire for water, as opposed to the copious amounts of coke ive been consuming as of late... hm. fuck. once i get this job in september im so going on a print spending spree.

When I'm stuck in meetings or just staring into space, I often find myself drawing cubes in perspective and stacking and rotating them. I sometimes punch holes in them or knock angles off the edges... no matter, what I envision is remarkably like what you've done - only you did it better...

Yes, it's addicting...

Oddly, it is that kind of time-killing activity that helps inspire these kinds of aesthetic sojourns.

yeah, well, originality smoriginality.

even if somethings not been done before, someone has done something like it, so don't let that hinder your work.

This is beautiful and is a nice composition leading you into the space defined by the texture behind it.

let it be. thanks for submitting this.
