Benjamin King: Abstracted Landscapes

read
Loosely-rendered paintings merge landscape and abstraction

With a few notable exceptions, landscape painting and abstraction operate on separate planes, and ne'er the twain shall meet. Brooklyn-based painter Benjamin King ignores this illusory boundary, with raw and expressive interpretations of natural landscapes. The works on canvas distill the feelings and sensations of the nature scenes -- without accurately depicting them. As he explains in a......read more

Macro Minerals Make Abstract Art

read
Incredible close-up images of agate crystals show off nature's art skills

Few things in nature are more creatively patterned than agate, a type of quartz that forms in concentric layers in a wide variety of colors and textures. The fine-grained rock has been a favorite carving material since at least as far back as Ancient Greece.  These macro shots of agate, part of a Flickr set created by a Czech mineral shop, show off the rock's psychedelic patterns and......read more

Vanishing Point

Lovely animated abstraction from Takuya Hosogane

There comes a time when we all grow tired of wasting time at work by reading blogs and barely smirking at "I Can Has Cheezburger" pics -- a time when only pure mindless visual joy will suffice. That time is now, good friends. Immerse yourself in "Vanishing Point," an expressionistic piece of 3D abstraction from Takuya Hosogane. The animated clip, made with next-gen software like After Effects,......read more

William Miller: Gowanus Canal

NYC photographer finds abstract beauty in the polluted Brooklyn waterway

Brooklyn's Gowanus Canal carries the unwelcome distinction of being one of America's most polluted waterways. To gaze into it is to witness more than a century of unfettered industrial abuse, with all of the coal tar, oil slicks, and garbage you might expect. So it's not exactly the most photogenic landscape in New York. But local photographer William Miller has a knack for finding beauty in......read more

Alexandra Pacula: Luminous Heights

Abstract paintings filled with the energy and lights of NYC nightlife

We were excited when New York-based artist Alexandra Pacula contacted us to share information about her first solo show, Luminous Heights, at Gallery Henoch. The collection features rare and stunning cityscape paintings of New York City, with a bit of a twist. The artist beautifully blurs city lights from buildings, street lamps, taxi cabs, and bridges to create an abstract portrayal of the urban......read more

J. Henry Fair: Abstraction of Destruction

read
A photographer goes skyward to capture "industrial scars."

Like a good war photojournalist, J. Henry Fair stops at nothing to capture his image. In his case, the battle being waged is between industrial forces and the earth. The muckracking photographer takes to the sky in planes and helicopters, flying over enemy lines to shoot eerily beautiful pictures of polluted landscapes. The resulting images evoke Abstract Expressionist paintings, hence the......read more

Dream Landscapes by Samantha Keely Smith

Shadowy, mystical paintings that play at the edge of abstraction

We don't feature a lot of painting on SHFT. There's no explicit reason for that, maybe it relates to the fact that photography shows actual stuff happening in the real world, whereas painting happens in a studio. In any case, every once in a while we come across brushwork that's too good not to post. Here would be such an occasion. British-born, NYC-based artist Samantha Keely Smith creates......read more

Aerial Abstraction

read
Utterly amazing Google Earth screen caps

If you're beginning to think we have sort of a thing for aerial and satellite photography, you are correct. This series comes from Flickr user totaviva, who we can't tell you anything about because, well, we don't know anything. No matter, she didn't take these photos anyway. They're actually screen grabs from Google Earth. But that doesn't make them any less freakishly amazing. From eastern......read more

Michelle Peterson-Albandoz: Salvaged Wood Abstraction

read
Rhythms and patterns created from discarded wood

For Michelle Peterson-Albandoz, dumpster diving is just part of her creative process. The Chicago artist trolls for discarded pieces of wood around her North Side neighborhood, then shapes them into abstract sculptures featuring patterns and textures inspired by nature.  The large, striking works reflect Peterson-Albandoz's environmentalist ideas. "I'm involved with a lot of......read more
