Expressionism and Abstraction March 2020

Chris Wright Photo Trips

Welcome to this month’s showcase of expressionism and abstract photos.

I hope in these trying times that we are in with the COVID-19 pandemic, that we are all safe and healthy. I do believe that art is an important component of our mental well being, and hopefully these compositions will provide a bit of joy in your life.

Mullion Framed Rectangles of Sky. The deep blue, wispy clouds, soft grey, and the textured mullions combine to form an intriguing abstract.

Red Awning Origami. This brought back a childhood memory of my friend Richard showing the class the art of origami. I distinctly recall how impressed I was with the magic from the transformation of paper. This image has similarities to that with the transformation of an everyday object and it even has visible “fold” lines, much like origami has. Thanks Richard!

Yellow on Blue Heading to Chaos. I like the colour play between the yellow and blue and the strong pull to the centre from the white lines.

What Illuminates at Night, Shades by Day. I was very taken with the shadows created from a street light pole and the concept that it was producing an opposite effect.

Free Form Yellow Tulips. I like the energy and sense of coming spring in this abstracted rendering.

Folding Planes and Squares. I like the geometry and the shades of grey in this composition.

Entering the Red Maw. A whimsical take on a bright lunch time outing taking photos.

Abstracted Boulder in Pond. In making this composition while on a club outing, I had several confused people wondering what I was doing! Oh well, it is all about the results.

White Lines on Multi Layered Red Squares. An interesting geometric study.

Texture and Movement In the Garden. I was pleased with the sense of texture and movement I was able to achieve in this composition.

Big Pipe with Grills. While people were eating their lunch in the bright sun, I was busy creating art.

Linked Trans Link. The TransLink sign become an interconnected study of lines and text.

  1. Hi Chris, With each image, I pause and ponder. You’re holding my attention. Love each one but particularly your personal story with the origami.
