TheCompositional Strength of Dots

Although Tomas Nakada describes his works as referencing patterns that are created by microscopic cells, their growth and migration; I'm again reminded of the power of using dots as the sole compositional tool and how far we've come since the Pointillists.

He's represented by Gallery Paule Anglim, where you'll see several variations on this theme and you can visit his Website.

Bubble Dots

Who knew bubble-wrap could look so luscious ?

Quite an attractive painting by Matteo Callegari: it draws you in because you're curious - "is that texture ?" When you look at the installation shots of his show at Ramiken Crucible, you really don't have a clue; but visit the artist's Website where the backgrounds are close-ups and you suddenly "get it". They are amazing.
