Recently, I’ve curated a number of image series by photographers from ‘Flickr’ on my blog ‘Aesthetic Investigations’. Subsequently, I thought it would be interesting to document these works in a book. Therefore, i’ve arranged a collection of ’39’ abstract and minimal photographic series by these ’32’ artists. A selection of pages from the book can be viewed below, a full book preview can be seen: HERE

Thank you to everyone who contributed their images to this project.

azurebumble :: hypo-x-series : a digital photography curation

CLICK HERE FOR iPAD /iPHONE VERSION


“This book is the result of an online collaboration between 111 international artists and photographers, where by simply utilising the infrastructure of the photo sharing website ‘flickr’ we have managed to communicate, interact and gather together a stunning collection of over 400 abstract and aesthetic photographic works!

For this project I have reorganised a series of virtual online curations toward interconnected progressions of sensual, thought provoking and emotive works. Selected carefully each double-page spread features a self-contained visual duet, these pairings are also integral to the flow of the sequence as a whole. This continuity allows the viewer to visit any page at will and embark on an intriguing journey into a complex and ethereal world of delicate changing moods.

A space involving unexpected movements of colour, shape and form, minimal tonal progressions with gentle transitions from dark to light and warm to cool, subtle textural, linear and conceptual relationships and occasional mysterious figurative apparitions. Ultimately inviting emotional responses via the poetic adventures of the imagination and the senses.” Azurebumble (Alan Wilson)

y sin embargo #29 :: last/s issue




If communication means to put something in common, is it possible, today, at the height of the era of communication, putting something in common? Or all we got are monologues?

This issue marks the 7th anniversary of the Barcelona based independent arts/culture magazine Y SIN EMBARGO and it is the last issue of their 4 seasonal publications cycle.

“Seven years of a periodical and independent publication is perhaps both necessary and a long enough time to verify or put into practice a set of ideas, wishes and adventures. YSE closes a cycle, but doesn’t close (neither literally nor metaforically).

New situations, new circumstances and, most of all, new wishes and interests consume and demand the always limited well of time and energy. We have grown in this seven years without any kind of sponsoring, there was never a financial support or even modest underpinnings to give any logic of survival to the publication. Everything has been done on breathhold, in a respiratory exercise, at times painful, even if oxygen (of course intangible) always managed to be there in the end. Nevertheless, these are times of generalised asphyxia and sometimes – even though nostalgia or stubbornness exert their seduction- it is necessary to dry the boat’s dock, caulk and face different courses. We will go on, but we will be other.

Thanks to all those who have been reading and watching and those who took part. You’ll be hearing from us.” fernandoprats, art director and the founder of Y SIN EMBARGO.

azurebumble :: fragmental : book


Fragmental is a new book from Azurebumble (Alan Wilson), it consists of six series of digital artworks, each having evolved from small sections ‘sampled’ (cut) from photographs.


“A process where these basic elements have been combined and recombined numerous times to produce an extensive vocabulary of shapes and forms. With no preconceived ideas, I begin to play and improvise with these pieces allowing my imagination to create compositions, perhaps based on a simple pattern, an interesting association or architectural element, or maybe they’ll suggest some surreal narrative. These constructions can then form the basis for a continuation of this process, whereby selecting the most interesting aspects of these new images and placing them into the original pool, can create possibilities for fresh combinations and different ideas. This continual process of deconstruction and reconstruction also makes it possible to trace the evolution of specific elements throughout a number of incarnations and series. Despite the multiple choices this technique allows, I think it’s also important to introduce source material from outside the pool. Lately, using a similar process, I have been ‘remixing’ works by another photographer (Fernando Prats) and ‘refurbishing’ and ‘reimagining’ an old photograph by Andreas Feininger. In time, certain aspects of these series could possibly be integrated with earlier works to produce new and interesting hybrids.” Azurebumble

Tom McLaughlan :: photos for sale to help Charlie and Kathleen Dunnery Children’s Fund

Please...©daruma* (Tom McLaughlan), all rights reserved

“From couch potato to marathon runner in four months”, so says Steve Dubois who’s decided to run the 26-mile London Marathon on April 17 2011 to raise money for the Charlie and Kathleen Dunnery Children’s Fund. The charity is based in a little town called Egremont, which is where I lived for a few of my pre-school years.
Steve asked three of us to curate exhibitions of photographs for sale through RedBubble. In addition to the one I’ve pulled together on Abstracts, Jason Theaker did Landscapes and Bob Davis The Fens. Please do spend a moment to look at the pictures and, even better, please buy something. Steve is going to raise £6,000 and I would like the photography exhibitions to contribute as much as possible to that total. So please help!

Twenty five people have been absolutely superb in joining with me and donating an image for the Abstract exhibition. There will also be a Blurb book very soon, but for now heartfelt thanks from Steve and me to the 25 Abstractionists: Azurebumble, barb_stell, barbera*, bluesrose, booksin, brancolina, Caecilliametalla, DanielaNob, Gianni Galassi, giò batta, Hans Knikman, htakat, jotKa26, Julian E…, kate mellersh, Lord Jezzer, mluisa, me*voila, polah2006, pannaphotos, p r i m e r, rita vita finzi, Wouter & Canon, zecaruso and zelnunes

For more details about the fund-raising and Steve’s training programme just log on to www.SteveOnTheRun.co.uk. You will see there that Steve’s motto for this campaign is “the only thing you get to keep is what you give away” and so in that spirit …

MANY THANKS!

Tom McLaughlan
