I created this site back in 2009 to share content gathered from my favorite online sources: most of them related to art and design but also websites, videos and short essays on anything from science and management to cool infographs. More often than not, figments has been about distributing content rather than creating it. I have also shared someimpressions about my most recent trips abroad. I recently came back from a four-months journey to India (studying at IIM-Lucknow); if you've followed my previous entries, you will know I am fascinated by Asian cultures.
Theme used: Six to Close by Richard Woodson
Bacon turned to landscape in times of personal loss. A Piece of Wasteland, Jet of Water, Blood on Pavement… They are non figurative, but there’s action in those pictures; the conversation there is about action painting. He is making a commentary on the rise of abstract expressionism, abstract painting in britain, and making his retort. This is his challenge.
You see Mr. Rothko, simply by calling my painting ‘Blood on pavement’ I can have a much more profound relationship with my viewer than you can.
