Last week´s art discoveries were amaaaaazing!!!. Keep going and you´ll see.
Luis Barragán, Casa Gilardi
Looking for images about overlaping planes, colors and shadows, I got to find the above and below pictures which I included in my pinterest space occupancy board. They are examples of Luis Barragán architecture. He was a mexican architect whose works, besides many other interesting things, may remind you to abstract art compositions. These pictures were taken by photographer Kim Zwarts, and were published in the monograph ‘Luis Barragán – the Eye Embodied’ (2006).

As the week went by, and while trying to find answers that helped futher develope my new conceptual abstract art paintings called “space occupancies” ( I will be showing some of them in the comming weeks), I decided to watch again Michael Dienbenkorn´s Ocean Park abstract paintings.
Richard Diebenkorn, Ocean Park 36
What I think (but I´m not 100% sure) Diebenkorn masterly did was to flatten planes and perspectives. Color, helped him on this objective. The more I look at his Ocean Park paintings, the more questions araise and the more I enjoy them. Can anyone help me? Do you know what he was trying to explain?
If you like his abstract paintings, I recommend you write down Diebernkorn Ocean Park on Google, and then press images. Enjoy!!

Another surprising discovery was this Australian abstract artist named Justin Andrews. It´s interesting how he overlaps planes. I recomend watching his creations. At the begining they made me think about rusian suprematism, but as you can see, he adds new dimensions to what the rusians did.

So far not bad, isn´t it? . I told you at the beggining of this article.
Let me finish with two more things. The first one is a picture of an abstract painting of one of my most admired artists, spanish Manolo Millares. Do you like the organic matter together with the unkonw, mistical meaining in it? A picture of his abstract paintings has nothing to do with watching them on reality. So if you ever have the chance…

The second and last thing is this text I found on wikipedia, while reading his abstract art definition. I quote: ” A commonly held idea is that pluralism characterizes art at the beginning of the 21st century. There is no consensus, nor need there be, as to a representative style of the age. There is an anything goes attitude that prevails; an “everything going on”, and consequently “nothing going on” syndrome; this creates an aesthetic traffic jam with no firm and clear direction and with every lane on the artistic superhighway filled to capacity. Consequently magnificent and important works of art continue to be made albeit in a wide variety of styles and aesthetic temperaments, the marketplace being left to judge merit.
