“Arthur Jacob tests the limits of photography, deconstructing reality in swirling patterns and a spectrum of glowing colors that render the known world mysteriously new.”
Photographic Abstracts & Reconstructions
My body of work reflects an internal examination of a subject rather than the external examination of a subject and how it relates to its exterior environment of the photograph. Harold Rosenberg defined the Abstract Expressionist’s canvas as an “arena to act in.” My intent is to give the observer the knowledge of what the real life image is, and then through abstraction and reconstruction of that image, invite the observer to act in that arena; and to explore the infinite possibilities that each abstraction and reconstruction presents.
The use of color, form and balance reveal much about me as an artist and person. Color depicts emotions. Lines, that are either gently wavy or sharply spiked, become the attitude in my work.
