Official Abstract/Surreal ThumbShare - January 2013

Hallo; I'm ^arctoa and I'm the Community Volunteer for Abstract and Surreal Photography.

As part of my effort to bring abstract and surreal art to wider attention, I am hosting these monthly thumbnail exhibitions for you guys to post up thumbnails of your abstract/surreal deviations. Or, if you prefer, you can post some abstract/surreal work made by others that you particularly enjoy.

The best work submitted will make its way into a special Feature Friday news article at the end of the month.

While my main focus is with abstract and surreal photography, feel free to post work from other media; this is about showcasing the genre as much as the medium. With that in mind, please check out (and comment upon) the work featured herein!

I have but two requests: refrain from spamming up the thread, and keep it respectful. Get to it!

I'm not an abstract and surreal photographer, but I create abstract and surreal art.

Thanks for the showcase opportunity! I'm not the best at defining and categorizing art, so these may or may not be considered Abstract/Surreal by most people's standards. I chose them because they all have a quirky feel to them, and probably most important, none of them are fully real. They are all real photographs, but they are all either taken at a different angle or modified in a way that makes them portray something different. I call it Surreal, but I may be wrong. You might be able to better and more clearly define the genre for me. Anyway, hope you like them and thanks for the showcase forum! :)

Well, the simplest definitions that I am aware of are that abstractions are pieces where the subject matter is unrecognisable or where the impact of shape, light, and tone take major significance over subject matter: and surrealities are pieces where the subject matter has been removed from reality or disconnected from regular perception, or where there's something curiously out of place in a composition.

Obviously these aren't definitive, but it's what I tend to follow.

Thank-you for sharing.
