Gears #10 Balla's Mechanism by AlexFlorezArt Gears #10 Balla's Mechanism by AlexFlorezArt
acrylic and ink on canvas - 2012
can't remember the dimensions, it's... big...

Abstract painting made for a local gallery's juried show. It made it in! I'm putting a more futurist twist on my gears, so the outlines start becoming repeated contours and less defined.

Here's the show details: [link]

Stop by if your in the area, you may even see me at the show!

That's awesome stuff.  The colors are substantial and somewhat minimal so the focus is on radical lines and shapes. A very accurate tribute to futurism art.  LOVE IT. :D

thanks for your reply. I tried to put a smiley on the reply and the link showed up. I thought maybe i should just delete it but i decided to leave it in there. I did not know it was a link for deviant art. Sorry if it caused any issues.

No, no problem. To make a smiley just use a colon and a parentheses without a space between. : )

You should look at the works of Giacomo Balla, one of the inspirations behind this piece (and who it's named after). Mine is similar to a lot of his pieces.

Futurism became my favorite art movement my senior semester of college. Giacomo Balla is my second favorite artist from that movement - my favorite is Umberto Boccioni, who tragically died young. If you want to see more futurist works like mine, I suggest watching the neo-futurist group. I've been trying to collect art there from other deviants like me. :)

Thank you for all the info. I'll have to study up on futurism. It seems to be right along the lines of what I really enjoy. Thank you. :)
