South American Terraces I & II

Remember the South American terrace paintings I mentioned in my September 2 blog post?
In the pictures above they have been ‘abstracted’ by reducing the number and complexity of shapes in their composition. Reducing the complexity beyond the level of recognizability produces a non-representational design.
I hope to show that this design can evoke a quite different reality, especially when considered as a haiga, accompanied by a poem such as this enigmatic little computer-generated haiku:
Less is more for all
This is where the ‘quantum leap’ I defined at the end of my September 23 post comes in… How far do you need to go beyond ‘recognizable’ to make that leap? Further than South American Terraces II, I suspect.
Plan B will continue...
