Michael Amrose /Abstract Photography
Using a collage comprised of basic geometric shapes and primary colors as representations of simple and ubiquitous elements of today's visual vocabulary as my subject, I apply movement in the frame to represent the passage of time. While remnants of basic shapes remain, new dimensions appear and new unique shapes and complex colors are created. Through time, our visual language evolves and changes, as does all life. Each image represents the evolution of life from the basic to complex, and as more time passes, from rational to emotional, from the unambiguous to the ambiguous, and from consciousness to a spiritual essence—pure light, color and energy.
“But nobody is visually naive any longer. We are cluttered with images, and only abstract art can bring us to the threshold of the divine.” ― Dominique De Menil, The Rothko Chapel: Writings on Art and the Threshold of the Divine
