    • Thanks Glen,. Somehow I could not comment. Had to register with some other site.
      Anyway, the group of pix above have a theme that i like; that is the biomorphic resemblance to pre-vertebrate life forms. Vertebrate forms tend to have bi-lateral symmetry . A lot of your forms are spiral or radial, indicative of stationary organisms like plants. This is a different architectural organizing principal than clasical humaism, which uses bi-lateral symmetry, the model being the shape of man.

      Abstract moderism. parametrics, constructivism, etc, derive from machines, graphic art and computer modeling software. These are not modeled from life-forms. The focas is on the instruments, not the end; the tail wagging the dog is the cliche.

      good to be back,,, eric

    • ERIC,

      NICE TO SEE YOU ARE COMMENTING AGAIN.

      YOUR ANALOGY TO NATURE VS. MACHINES IS CORRECT. ALTHOUGH I DEFINITELY LIKE MACHINES TO GET INSPIRATION FORMS. I TOOK MY CLASS TO A MECHANIC THAT TORE ENGINES APART WHEN THEY WERE SEEKING UNIVERSAL BEAUTY. THE GIRL THAT LIKED THAT AESTHICS DID A DESIGN, BUT IT WAS BONGED BY THE PUBLIC.

      THAT IS WHY MOST PEOPLE FIND ANYTHING MACHINE LIKE DISTANT TO THEIR TASTE . JUST HUMAN NATURE.

      BUT I ALWAYS THOUGHT MY DESIGNS OVERCAME THAT WITH CURVES AND FLOWING SHAPES. BUT EVEN THAT IS REJECTED BECAUSE IT IS NOT FAMILIAR.

      A TOUGH THING TO SELL TO THE MASSES. BUT I WILL KEEP TRYING.

  1. ERIC,

    THANKS FOR THE COMMENT. I WROTE A COMMENT AND IT WAS REJECTED.
    SO HERE IS TO HOPING THE COMMENT WILL POST.

    NATURE FORMS VS MACHINE FORMS, I LIKE BOTH, BUT THE NATURE FORMS HAVE FLOWING LINES THAT I THOUGHT WOULD BE UNIVERSAL BEAUTY. BUT THE MASSES REJECT FOR NOT BEING FAMILIAR.

    BUT I WILL KEEP TRYING.

    GLEN

  2. Happy New Year to you Glen! I am thankful your doing so well and the world is closer to seeing your biomorphic dreams realized!
