Tagsmart Weekly Discovery: Rod Jones, The Creator of Receptive Abstract Patternism

Tagsmart discovers Rod Jones, a Southern Californian artist known to be the creator of receptive abstract patternism.
Rod Jones says: “I push my chosen art style with every painting I do. Some are more successful than others. But I’m not afraid to challenge either the viewer or myself. If I can use color and form in an eclectic way and still maintain some semblance of continuity, then I am accomplishing my goal.”

The style he embraced is one that evolved from initially painting in the Impressionist style. Today his art is considered by many to be especially authentic. When viewed, the body of his art has a common theme yet each piece clearly stands on its own. His work is constantly evolving and the style that he has created is open-ended and has no restrictions.

His style has been named Receptive Abstract Patternism™, a term coined by his daughter. She determined that the style revolves around the artist receiving conscious and sub-conscious signals and stimuli to create an image independent of common form, held together by the continuity and comfort of a pattern.

The style is ever evolving, but so many of the pieces that have been created are a testament to true artistic originality.

Tagsmart weekly Discovery: Charles Clapshaw, a Tropical Paradise

Charles Clapshaw is a post-abstract expressionist painter from Australia inspired by the great masters of art such as: Sol LeWitt, Frank Stella, Milan Mrkusich, Donald Judd, Michael Johnson, Kandinsky, Malevich, Klee and Hilma af Klint.

Form and colour dominate Charles’s art with the painting developing the shape of the subject along with the texture of the paint.  
The subjects of his art, consist of personal stories interwoven among theories of space, dimension, and weight. The simplicity of the lines and the vibrancy of the colourful layers makes its form the sole subject matter.

Charles uses the space of his canvas to create visual tricks based on viewing angles and lighting by giving the observer the ability to move around the painting, look underneath and up above the work and yet adds another aspect to how his painting can be interpreted and viewed.

The lines and layers in his work create a unique space on the canvas and reflect the painter’s unique style. Breaking the logic and rules of the paintings is part of Charle’s ongoing contradiction.
