I am interested in motion in a 3-dimensional context (5). My photograph barely captures the sharp drop-off to the lake and there is no motion to speak of. How can this landscape be imaged in a more interesting way? Would it help to change the medium?

Excellent examples of motion in a 3-D context are illustrated in two posts and addressed in one comment on A&P. For example, the left aspect of Angela Ferreira’s painting Fado shows a street gliding rapidly away.

Colin Jago’s photographs of Allium aflatunense combine sharp and soft focus and thereby evoke simple or more more complex motions.

I was struck by the quote in D.’s comment #11.2

You see how de Kooning’s using a landscape metaphor, blurring the back edge of the bowl to make it look distant, even though it actually would have been as clear to him as the front edge?’’ he asks. This is a little hard to discern, but Mr. Thiebaud has a point to make: ‘’I don’t agree with Duchamp that the eye is a dumb organ. Duchamp talked about the eye of the mind. I think the eye has a mind of its own, and there are different ways we see: there’s peripheral vision, the myopic up-close sensation, focused seeing. And the more ways you can put together in a picture, as de Kooning does here, the richer it becomes, the more like life.

D.’s quote reminded me of a large painting by de Kooning illustrating motion along a mountainside. I saw it in the Met in the nineties.

Remember Walter Bartman saying Three dimension as an illusion in painting has been it’s “Holy Grail…
