Creativity unbound finds purpose

Embracing the segmented city with a playful wave of color

It fills the void, laying out possibility

I finished 2016 by combining geometric abstract graphics with my abstract photography to create unique mixed media digital artworks. At the start of 2017, I will be launching my new Whimsical Geometry Series, which adds additional expressionist texture and an unexpected dash of whimsy to modern geometric abstraction.

* Aceves Art has a new modern look 👀 ! Feel free to check it out and tell me what you think! I’d love to get you feedback!

For all the patient viewers who have visited my blog, thank you for your interest in my work!

Wherever you find yourself in 2017, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 🎆 🍾 🎉

Unfortunately, due to illness, I will not be posting any poetry to go along with the image. This last week I indulged in some evil, lactose free, vanilla bean ice cream and as a result, entered into the land of many tummy troubles. Things are just beginning to settle down health wise, but who knows if I’ll be able to enjoy the coveted Christmas morsels we nibble on once a year. Big sigh…. This is just a glimpse of the new series I will be working on in 2017. It combines digital graphics and abstract photography to create an inter-dimensional, intergalactic, otherworldly feel.

To all my readers, have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

If you do not celebrate Christmas, have a Happy and Blessed Holidays!

Ordinary Objects That Look Like Landscapes

A reluctant snow scene emerges from its canvas of grease and fat.  Natures struggle is reflected in a single moment.  The eye wants freedom; the mind is restless.

Each new year offers plenty of opportunities to be creative and share your unique vision. Wishing you all a productive and creative new year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ordinary Objects That Look Like Curious Sea Creatures 2

MIND AMMONITE (RAINBOW)

Day dreaming about finding himself in a sea of collected memories, he settles for the closest state he can access. Past thoughts, actions and relationships fill each bee cell like layered syrups. At first glance they appear separate, but when viewed as a whole they move together. Gathering at the limits of humanity, they stand side by side, technicolor soldiers blinded by the idea of coexistence yet never touching.

The accompanying description/poem is about how the mind can split after a traumatic event. Sometimes the particular event and other memories associated with it cannot be easily accessed. As a result the person goes through life feeling splintered or disconnected. They never feel like a whole or complete individual. Connected memories in their minds coexist (exist along side one another), but there is great difficulty in linking them together as part of a consistent, accessible event that allows the individual to heal from the trauma.

This particular picture was taken from a Christmas gift that I purchased for my cousin Kevin Aceves and his wife Kristen Shelley Aceves.  I had taken at least three different shots of this object and each has a different feel and look to it. Either way though, all appear to reference biology in some form or another.

I am wishing you all a Happy New Year!

What does this object remind you of?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Promise of a New Year: What’s your Art Resolution for 2014?

Promise of a New Year: What's your Art Resolution for 2014?

Another year has come and gone and now it would appear it is time to make resolutions. I usually choose not to get in the habit of making resolutions because I never know what the year will bring. This does not mean that proper planning or taking advantage of the right opportunities is not helpful; it simply means that none of us can completely prepare for what we don’t know is going to happen. However, I have decided to break that mold and make an Art Resolution for 2014: I plan to find new and innovative ways to promote my work to a wider audience and investigate selling giclee prints online. Oops! I guess that would be more than one resolution! On that note, I would like to end this short and sweet post by inviting you to share your resolutions for this new year!
