With most artist, art has taken on a whole new agenda, to perhaps highlight certain aspects of life, events that has changed the artist, or even in some cases (BANKSY), art is used with a political agenda. Now before I say what I am about to, I do find that these aspects help create dept in a piece, but it has been a while since I have found an artist, who specialises in simply creating an image that is pleasing to the eye, which is exactly what Pery Burge does.
Pery Burge, has a very unique style of photography, which in my mind is a mash up of photography and marbling. First of he takes ink and drops it out on a paper or on water, whisks it gently and lets nature run it course as the colours collide and contrash with one another. In the mists of all this action (yes I am aware that I am making this sound like some mad tornado and not ink floating in water), Burge stands at the ready to capture the images that these colours create.
Previously I had talked about line being an unrecognised element in every great masterpiece (you don’t sit down and look at the Mona Lisa and go what a spectacular horizon line), but colour is a recognised ingredient and for good reason as warm colours draw in the eye, demanding the main focus, colour in some cases (Piet Mondrian) being the only focus. If you wanna check out more of Pery Burges work (or are just bored) you can find it at this link; http://www.chronoscapes.co.uk/
