Black And White

Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication. Savour these beautiful black and white works on ARTmine.

We live in a world of color. Numerous shades and hues are what our eyes are accustomed to which is probably why black and white works of art remain a timeless favorite among many. There is something about the monochromatic imagery that turns a generic visual into something abstract and almost other-worldly. After all, simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.

Black and white is abstract; color is not. Looking at a black and white photograph, you are already looking at a strange world.
– Joel Sternfeld

The world often looks better in black and white. These works of art demonstrate exactly that – a simplistic beauty in the lack of color.

With a very unique technique, Dominic Fondé takes the ordinary combination of black and white and simple short stories and turns them into magnificient works of art. The word ‘Cadenza’ is a musical movement inserted into a musical work, typically at the end. Staying true to its title, this work is certainly as beautiful and as soulful as the end of a composition.

Marco Petracci‘s work, Look is as poetic as it is mysterious. The utilisation of the contrast between dark and light and the angle makes this work an excellent example of the power of black and white. Taking inspiration from music and daily experiences, Marco creates work that is potent with emotion and yet open to subjective interpretation.
