My Zazzle Store
I am now selling merchandise such as t-shirts, iPhone cases, mugs, buttons and more at my new online Zazzle store “marcoimage”. My store features imagery of many of my abstract paintings and designs with subjects such as music, nature, sports and the human figure. Stop on by for a visit!
Featured this week is an abstract watercolor painting that David completed back in May titled “Reflection”. This watercolor represents a slight change in the previous figural paintings that David has completed. There is an emphasis in this painting to render the negative space in a more loose, airy manner while leaving much of the positive space blank. Also, David did not attempt to contain and paint the entirety of the image in rectangular limits, but keep the borders undefined. Typical of his work, David revisits the geometrical aspect of his subject, a kneeling woman in this case, reducing the subject to simple curves, line, circles and other shapes.
David Ralph, founder and owner of the imaging and conceptual company Marco Image & Concept, is a contemporary artist and illustrator who lives in Greenbelt, Maryland, USA.
About ten years ago, David had a vision to create a series of abstract watercolor paintings that explored the female figure through curve, line, and a composition of varying shapes of color, value, and pattern. This exploration led to a distinctive style that has shaped David’s unique brand of painting and illustration since.
In trying to describe and categorize his style of art, David Ralph has coined the term “Geoformism”. According to David, Geoformism is defined as a style of contemporary abstract art that focuses on the form of a subject (or object) and its underlying geometric essence. It contains elements of both geometric abstraction and figurative realism.
Today, David continues to create abstract compositions of the female figure as well as other themes of interest such as nature, music, people and sports. View David’s artist website at http://david-ralph.artistwebsites.com/.
