Industrial #5

This will be a short series. I created these a couple of months ago in September. The first few came to me easily. Then I found it difficult to recapture the gloomy mood of these early ones. I intended to come back and do more work on the series, but that never happened. The “next big thing” is not ready yet, so I dropped in this shorter series now.

Of course there is no rule that I must publish the entire series consecutively and then never return to it. That is usually how it goes, but it is not a rule. So I may revisit these in the future.

These images use darker, somewhat depressing colors, and shapes that seem impersonal, even intimidating. I like the overall gloomy feel it presents.

To the amateur psychologists out there, this has nothing to do with my personal mood. There are plenty of things in the real world to make me happy, sad, hopeful, angry, disgusted. My personal mood may affect my energy, my desire, to create art, but it does not inform the art that I create.

Think of this image as a fiction. I enjoy these darker pieces in a way similar to a novelist delights in creating a dark and wicked villain.
