All the members above attended. Madiha and Sakib were scribe and director again.
We looked at five abstract works:
1. LIGHT by Kandinsky (1930)
2. LOST MINE by Peter Lanyon (1960)
3. TREE series by Mondrian (1912)
4. AZALEA GARDEN by Patrick Heron (1956)
5. NET by Rana Begum (2019?)
Here are some of the many comments:
1. This one matches its title: LIGHT. It looks like an eye.
It makes me feel calm.
It looks like northern light: cool.
Its electric light.
2. It makes me feel it is reflecting my emotions.
3. These are based on trees. It’s like a mosaic.
It’s a bit scary. The colours are spreading out.
They’re different trees, not just one.
Not all of them look like trees… he creates the shape.
Some are in the winter and have no leaves – others show they may grow leaves, flowers, and fruit.
4. Does this show a particular type of plant?
They’re light brush-strokes.
He seems to see lots of humans here, instead of plants!
They’re a crowd of flowers.
It’s spring. It’s summer. Blossoming time.
Full of colour. He blended the colours in places.
The brushstrokes don’t really have a shape to them: they are blobs of paint.
5. I don’t think it’s an actual drawing.
It could be pieces of clothing (dress?) Or it might be a net.
Yes, it’s made of net. The colours - red, yellow, orange and grey – flow with the wind. How does she show volume?
The net pieces are overlapping.
She didn’t paint – the others did, but she used actual netting and arranged it to catch the light.
