Science + rainwater = caustic networks

LSTa0053 copyright Douglas Stockdale 2021 I am still working with my images from my last day-trip down to the local creek. This image, LSTa0053, is another interesting mashup of caustic networks with other refractions. I note that there is almost a transition point between the basic two types of refractions, something I will explore during... Continue Reading →

Quantum Elements – Winter rain

LSTa0066 copyright Douglas Stockdale 2021 Well I know what I should be doing. I have an solo exhibition that I should be promoting (well I guess this counts a little) as well as my book development workshop in March, see below. I know that 'promoting' these events is suppose to be all sorts of social... Continue Reading →

Abstract art for Abstractions sake?

This weekend I found myself spending a lot of time just staring (studying?) the initial prints from my new series Quantum Elements. I found myself questioning the underlying reason why I am creating this series of abstractions. I know what turned me onto this series in the first place; capturing the visual effects that link...

Crazy start for 2021

LSTa9793 Douglas Stockdale copyright 2020 My oh my.

Art-Science – continuing into 2021

LSTa9307 Copyright Douglas Stockdale 2020 Reading about the early 20th century artist Marcel Duchamp, that after he painted his famous painting Nude Descending a Staircase, he stopped painting to concentrate on Art-Science and to play chess. Interesting in how science became part of what he considered important as to how to create art. I am... Continue Reading →

RAW 13.1 just landed

One aspect of having a subscription to PhotoShop with Adobe is sometimes some updates just suddenly occur, such as today when I opened the above image in Bridge; there it was and now I was using Raw 13.1 (which I recall being stated as a 2020 version). A pop-up screen also alerted me to the... Continue Reading →

Modern Renaissance Man

One aspect of living in a pandemic is a lot of at-home time, which is fortunately where my studio is located. Also a lot of time for reflection and work on some close at-home artist projects. My principal COVID project is developing a series of artworks based on an aspect of science; Quantum mechanics and... Continue Reading →
