Ocean-Inspired Abstracts by Jonathan Gemmell

An artist whose work I have been thinking about this week is Jonathan Gemmell, an Australia-based abstract painter who claims that his work is largely inspired by the ocean and “evoking a moment of calm in the midst of nature”. His pieces, like the one attached, can be interpreted by the viewer in a variety of ways. As I look at his pieces, I am reminded of our in-class lecture from this previous week where we examined why abstract pieces work the way that they do by examining our thoughts when we see them. I especially adore Gemmell’s use of color as well.
