Invader Species by wroth Invader Species by wroth
Image Description:
Form is, and form will be, how you engage with it is what is crucially important. The black and white version strips away the coverings this color version has

To me this is work about borderlands and the insectile, about shadows overshadowing their caster, about the reevaluation of sight. Yo you it can be about whatever you like of course, I hope the form interests you

Media: Digital photography via Canon EOS, darkroom development in Photoshop on Mac OS.

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-10-25
Invader Species : color by `wroth; "This image sums up the abstract gallery's ideal - everyday objects composed and shot, with a result that defies identification. Having asked the artist what the image is of, I still cannot identify the subject, and how much more abstract can it get beyond that? Hopefully, seeing such a good example of abstract photography will clarify for the dA community the type of images that the gallery calls for." ( Suggested by tiganesc and Featured by opioid )

To me it looks as though it could be a terrain not of this planet,though I feel the urge to turn my head somewhat.Wonderful texture of the sand coupled with the old gold tones make for one interesting and inspiring image.

Thanks for stopping by znow :thanks: Gald you and others find it interesting. You pretty much nailed it, manipulating the viewer's sensation of space and presenting an appearance that is alien where two major points of this form study. :) Though more so in black and white.

Right on, thanks. I wanted there to be a feeling of alienation to add to the tension, so other worldly was a goal :)

musician these days.

The metal acting as a parasite and slowly gaining control over the tree kinda symbolizes that to me

wroth Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2007
:)I see. well, this is abstract not symbolic. Unlike most of my work which is conceptual ';Post Modern Symbolist'. So in this work the impact of the visual form on your mind is more important then representation of any symbols. It's actually a root not a wire for example, so the subject is not the focus, but the visual form it leaves is.

that metal wire seems to be trying to cling to something, though there's nothing stable around there...

oh, yesssss, that's a root....you're very right, vegetation overtakes the land :)

you're very welcome :aww:

:iconwroth:
wroth Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2007
Right on. The root there is supposed to suggest a grasping / reaching form, the way the wood all erupts and projects from the soil in a reaching manner is the source of the title

Thank you, for all your valued feedback :rose:

Finally, a well deserved DD.

There is very few ones that cares about getting the message right for others, with each piece of art there comes an essay, that's the way deviant art should work.

It takes time to decipher what we have before our eyes but the whole process is pleasant, you and your compositions take us from place to place, its a travel hidden within your pieces.

Anyways, you know I'm a fan and I'm happy that you got a dd.
