Daily Deviation Report: January 2013

Thu Jan 31, 2013, 3:07 AM
Hallo, and welcome to my second Daily Deviation Report. What follows is a comprehensive feature of the Daily Deviations that I featured during the month of January 2013 in the Abstract and Surreal categories. Additionally, there also a number of Conceptual works included this month as I helped out during a time when there was no Conceptual CV in place. That, of course, has now been put to rest with the appointment of astridle in the role.

In terms of this collection, all of these images caught my eye in some way; whether it be through technical perfection, compositional intrigue, or the concept within. I am proud to present these works, and I applaud the relevant artists for their dedication and inspiration.

This month, the following artists helped me greatly with my Daily Deviation features by sending suggestions to me via note for works, or artists, that they'd like to see featured. While in some cases I chose another work from the artist, their input was nonetheless invaluable as these works would not have come to my attention otherwise.

For those of you who suggested work that I did not, or have yet to, feature, thanks are also due. I appreciate each and every suggestion that I receive, and while they may not always end up with a Daily Deviation feature, it does expose me to new artworks to critique, appreciate, and feature elsewhere. Most of the content of my Friday Feature articles come from suggestions by other artists, for example! So, please, don't be discouraged if you don't get a reply or don't see your suggestions featured: feel free to send more in future.

Thank-you for your time, and all the best for the coming month.
