– Blunderbuss, 2015 –
This post is dedicated to Dan and Mario.
Ashley Lily Scarlett and I have started a new blog called Between Scarlett and Guest. It’s a dialogue in pictures. You can read/ eavesdrop on the conversation here.
Thanks very much, Rabirius.
I enjoyed the challenge to my eye.
Glad tohear it, Barry. Thanks.
I love the way the mixed media monkeys with your perception of what you’re looking at. i’m seeing plastic in a new light!
Thanks very much, Sarah! That’s so nice to read. It’s terrible really, but i’m a big fan of discarded carrier bags.
Wonderful colours, textures and dynamic composition.
Thanks very much, Erassima – much appreciated.
Pour moi , plastics égale 7em continent, celui créé par l’homme , ” la Pollution “…!!!
Yes, terrible. I make a point of only including things I find in the street in these pictures – there’s always a plastic bag floating down the road.
Another brilliant one Richard, although this time i cant work out which i like more the image or the title
Thanks very much, Leon!
It looks so brilliantly cellular and full of corpuscular activity.
Thanks so much, Patti.
Really glad you like it – thanks, Alison.
Inspired composition! Fantastic.
Thanks so much, Elena.
Another fascinating composition Richard. My pun twisty mind turned blunderbuss into blunder bus. Your composition now becomes the blunder bus map. No doubt the bus driver was madly trying to evade being shot by a blunderbuss. Must be a video game or a new transit map app. 😀
Thanks very much, Joseph. That’s really interesting – I was definitely thinking blunder when I was working on this – I like your version better 🙂
I love this. What is the medium used in this piece? I can’t determine if it is 3D or 2D, whether part of it is paint and some of plastic bag plus a little spray paint. But whatever it is, I like it. Isn’t a blunderbuss an antique firearm? Sort of a 19th century shotgun?
Really glad you like it. The medium is street photography and manipulation in Photoshop. Yes, the blunderbuss was a popular weapon from the 17th to the 19th Centuries. I in no way wish to celebrate their use 🙂
Thanks for clarifying. I thought perhaps you’d referenced a blunderbuss because of its appalling inaccuracy but that was really reaching. I think I’ll quit trying to “understand” the relationship between the piece and its title and simply admire it.
Oh, I do like these RG…
Thanks so much, Dave – really glad to read that – much appreciated. I think there will be more.
What strikes me so much about your collages is the balance you achieve. They feel “just right” somehow–the lines, colors, tones, textures… They feel good in my brain, if that makes any sense. I’m also really enjoying the palette you’ve been using.
Thanks so much – that’s really good to read. As with how I imagine you frame your shots, I build the image with “flavour” and “sound” 🙂 – it’s not as definite as that, but…flat notes sometimes ruin them.
