Abstract contraption by Filipa Nunes

Currently unavailable for purchase

all that is known and secure in the memory of time, had once been loose in the space of abstraction. To capture such ideas that flow endlessly and loosely in the betweens of reality, one much have a powerful contraption that will pull them all together in one place. After such contraption springs, another will take its place. And it takes time, since the known memories do tend to escape back to the ethereal space of nothingness.

Apophysis 7×15, Photoshop CS5 for frame and background (original file png transparent). Paint shop pro IX for colour tweaks.
Basis: satania gnarls tutorial
Tweaks, twists and turns, by me.

    My mind seems to be working like that? Really brilliant gnarls and gorgeous colours!

  • Sometimes it does work like this, other times it wraps itself around and reinvents itself. ;)
    Thank you for commenting Sylvia!

    Beautiful creation, Filipa! For some reason, my mind wants to look at it so that the right side is at the bottom…cool narrative, as well…conveys a concept of “mental entropy” which I totally agree is always a powerful and active force… Best, David

  • For some reason, your mind wants to reinvent it. Only normal, you are being captured by the contraption! (giggles) As I told you, stories do come out natural with me. I guess my mental entropy is more attuned with words than it is with images. But I fare in images too! Thank you David. :)

    Fabulous creation, Filipa, like the gradient and the title. I’ve fixed my link on ATF, thanks for let me know. No, I don’t use the Easy button, I simply post as usual…. ;o)

  • Gradient+title= weirdness. :) Thank you for commenting Claudia. Glad you fixed your link. If you use the easy button you will avoid that situation and everyone can comment. :)

    I think that is why I like it so much. It wasn’t a “safe” gradient. You tried something different and it worked out beautifully. I did the same thing on my recent gnarls. :) Great minds think alike!

  • Great minds do think alike. ;)

    Lovely piece of work Filipa. For me, it all seems to be converging from the left , heated and thrown out to the right. Well done, love it!

  • It is so funny how people tend to see your works in a different way. Thank you David. :) Your comments are always appreciated. :)
