Simple subjects make for dynamic possibilities when it
comes to creating images that are striking. The less complex
the elements of shape, color, detail and content are in an
image, the more impact an image can have on a viewer.
Take these tomatoes for instance. Simple in form, color
and detail, they stand out as a basic staple of repetitive
shape and pattern, thereby reducing the number of elements
a viewers brain has to process. It can be quite comforting and
Imagine yourself as a baby again discovering the environment
around you. Basic shapes, sounds, colors and outside stimulus
are new and engage your curiosity in a flurry of sensations.
Perhaps this is why simple images are ones that we find
comforting and are drawn to in the art world. They remind us
of a time in our life when things were new, exciting and worth
our undivided attention to marvel at and understand.
Perhaps it's this seeing beyond seeing, that engages us on a
level of feeling and not the act of recognition and looking that
draws us on a deeper level to one image and not another. Seeing
beyond seeing is the pursuit of images which have the power to
illicit personal and meaningful emotion and not simply exist as
visual documentation of a person, place or thing.
