Sun, Sea, Sand: Polurrian
Taken on what many people would describe as the idyllic Cornish Summer’s day, this triptych shows the evolution of an image from the original photographic representation of a beach scene, to an abstracted and simplified image.
All three images of the triptych retain the original colour and atmosphere of the original scene, but the more abstract images become more like a memory of the scene – the details are lost and only the colours and atmosphere are left.
This triptych also illustrates the abstraction technique that I use in some of my works. I take a very thin strip from the original image and stretch it horizontally in order to produce a second image. That second image will retain the colour and some, but not all of the detail of the first image. I then take a thin strip of that second image and stretch that to produce the final, abstracted image. In this way I produce a scene that is an impression of the original, rather than the more complicated and detailed original image.
