Contemporary Buzz n° 1/2/3

The trends are full of contrasts. We hop from cool to warm, from rough to smooth, from opaque to transparent etc.

"CONTEMPORARY BUZZ" (n°1 Rush Hour, n° 2 Shopping Bag, n°3 Lounge) are about bright, sometimes fluorescent colours, chinese dolls, LED lamps, transparency, illuminated graphic spaces:And also bright green, orange, yellow, red, reflecting in glass surfaces,
red and black laquered furniture and objects, simple versus intricate shapes:

Very bright and colorful and as you indicate "buzzed." Active and energetic. The others more refined. These have a young, contemporary feel. I like bright.

And now you go BOLD. Bright, amazing movement here...very modern feel to it. Almost futuristic. And do you make up the names of these colors too?

ANDREA said...

Thanks Suki and Lynn, thanks for your comments, there will be more around the "buzz" theme.
Lynn yes, I love how the names for the colours come flying through the air to me after I made up the colourway, it is almost natural. For me it is a little like writing poems:), have a wonderful day

Yes, they are really modern depicting the spirit of our time ... the joy we can find in these seemingly familiar forms and colors.... Your compositions,however, tells us that we have missed a lot... we should look more closely..
Thanks Andrea for the new look...

Jetzt muß ich lachen, ich wollte Dir jetzt unbedingt erzählen was ich am besten finde und bin jetzt dreimal wieder aus dem Kommentarfeld in den Post zurückgesprungen um letztlich festzustellen, daß alle Drei Klasse sind, und Klasse haben und ich mich einfach nicht festlegen kann.
