Photograph and Color Field

I have been exploring the idea of photographs that suddenly stretch out into a minimal field of view. This single image speaks of both vision and abstraction. Clearly it is based in photography, giving just a hint of reality and therefore making it partially relatable to the viewer. However, the stretched out pixels begin to subtract all form and rather focus on the color palette that makes up the whole of the scene. It reminds me of something like a Bridget Riley op art or a Mark Rothko color field painting, and so I see the final product working better as a very large print on the wall. Someday I hope to make a giant print of these. Someday.
