New Collection: NWMA - New Way Modern Art


19 September 2017


This week's new collection is NWMA. In the same vein as last week's OWMA, this collection defines a new 'era' in Modern Art, constructed using a slightly different set of tools. Just as miscellaneous a collections as last time, these works will provide a taste of what is to come in the following weeks and months. Loud and unusual yet not entirely distasteful color schemes return, as in When You Fill In A Shadow, a work focusing on two individually uncommon colors – a rosy deep crimson and a bright radioactive green – mixed together with gradual depth. Pixel art, too, returns in Dangerous Bacterium, a work that contrasts purple and yellow with each other while being drawn in a liquid pixel style that will not be nearly as prevalent in the coming weeks. Provocative, abstract, line-focused designs such as Welcome the Digital Haze will also be featured as much as before, but their composition will be different in color emphasis from before. This work in particular is at once more coarse and more smooth than its predecessors, which helps it emphasize an interesting duality. This coarseness will also make returns in more digital-focused styles, such as in The Two Sides of a Slope, an orange and dark teal work that contrasts a rough texture against a smooth design in addition to its color scheme's inherent contrast, and Where Digital Meets Analog, another work of duality between styles, this time more consistent and more explicit on where the division lies. Finally of note is Where Dreams Come From, an abstract and almost muted work, despite its variation in color, with interesting symbolic meaning. Please enjoy, and look forward to the coming collections!



ROLLING SUNSET BREEZE

24 April 2017


A calming work, representative of an entire class of the works in this gallery. The sunset motif is heavily visible in the background's orange-red color scheme, with the setting sun reflected in the lighter areas of the background. The feeling rolls across the smooth yet turbulent foreground from light into shadow, representing the shift from day into night.

PULSE EFFECT

26 September 2016


This work uses Moire to its fullest extent. A neon pulse comes from one edge of the image, breaking up and causing cracks in some structure. The pulse's light illuminates the colors and textures of the structure, displaying rough bits of color. This is one of the most fascinating works in MOMA's galleries, with a lot of depth and an inventive and fantastic image. There is a lot to ponder here.

VENEREAN LANDSCAPE

22 October 2015


The name of this work is inspired by its intense warmth. Comprable, perhaps, to the surface of the planet Venus, only with less noxious gas. Like the planet venus, as Venerean Landscape ascends from the bottom, rises in altitude, it becomes less intense and more calming, to match Venus's upper atmosphere and general exterior appearance. Perhaps it is an utterly hellish place, but at least from our point of view, Venus is indeed a truly beautiful planet.

MEGA RIPPLE WAVE

19 November 2015


Some sort of wave travels along, and as it reaches the center of this work it expands and reaches a sort of explosion, from which it departs in a marvelous array of colors. It is abstraction incarnate - what this picture really displays is impossible to understand, but it begs to be examined and reexamined, and admired for its beauty, its incomprehensibility.

DEEP POND

22 May 2015


Why are ponds green? I dunno. But then, sometimes you just have to jump in, and maybe it'll make sense. This was the first work in the Monitors of Modern Art library, and is a very strong start. It is a beautiful, yet simple, metaphor.
