    by GeoffM » Tue Oct 15, 2013 9:30 pm

    Posted in the 'Art' section, but is it art? Is it abstract? Is it sh1t?

    That is "SO" close to what I see while brushing my teeth in the morning.

    I have seen a lot worse stuff called art b4 Geoff so for my 2 cents worth " it is not the norm and I like it for that reason if no other"

    good stuff !

    better than art !

    I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can't see from the center.

    It has held my attention and interest longer that a lot of fine art photography does, therefore it must be art :)

    Geoff,

    I think it is the start of something but not quite there just yet. More thought. More experiment?

    Whenever somebody asks me if something is art, I just do the gallery test. Can I picture someone dressed in all black, holding canapés in one hand and a flute of champagne in the other saying something about 'the dichotomy of society' when looking at this. :wink:

    It kind of reminds me of 'Animal' from the muppets. I still like it though and am interested to see where you go with exploring it further.
    Feedback and honest, constructive criticism is greatly appreciated.

    The white background with the colour is nice, keep playing though.
