New Collection: WWMA - Weird Weather Modern Art


13 November 2017


This week's new collection is WWMA. This collection's theme is portraying the environment, displaying wide landscapes and the climates thereof. These works, as a result, focus more on large, expressive backgrounds than on images in the foreground. Improper Imposter Eclipse is possibly the largest exception to this, its background being more detailed and specific in its image than in the other works in this collection. The work's portrayal of its subject - an eclipse of the sun on the horizon, somehow - is somewhat abstract and possibly inaccurate, but then again, its title implies such. In a very different way, Tumult is effective because its gingerly-colored, dim background compliments its curvy, unstable foreground. Confusion and disorder are present, but vague and foreboding. Wrong Kind of Mist is similar in feel, with a lot of smooth color changes in both the foreground and the background, and emphasizing a very foreboding feeling. Its texture is also faintly coarse and digital, a texture also reflected in Shatterscape's Helth, which goes much further with it. The shatterscape is a concept not wholly unfamiliar to this gallery, and here it is portrayed in an ordered chaos, things seeming to fall apart and into disorder but still with a consistent, patterned structure behind them. And finally of note, my personal favorite work this week is Double Flaming Sky, an intense work that, while it may be rather one-note, plays that note perfectly. The superposition of one sky atop another, their textures identical yet somehow not matching, gives this work its intrigue; its fiery coloration gives it its soul. Please enjoy!



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.
