Stock photographer, abstract artist, feature writer and major heart attack survivor who is getting too old to ride fixie bikes and love French women. However, I have 25 different Tumblr Buzz themes ranging from Arts, Cafés & Nudes to Nikons, Leicas & Volkswagens, all with visually stimulating images. You can also follow me at "Ed Buziak / Fotoformat" on Facebook.
"Vase" ~ Daniel Cummings, 2013.
(Cummings work simply knocks me out! ~ EdBuzz).
Daniel Cummings (b. 1980) was a graduate of the MFA program at UCLA in sculpture, where he transferred his interest in 3-dimensional objects to painting. His abstract work plays with space and color in a variety of scales. The result: Deceptively simple, formal compositions that belie complex figure/ground relationships.

"Hopfgarten" ~ Lyonel Feininger, 1920. Minneapolis Institute of Arts Oil on canvas, 32.25 x 25 inches.
Lyonel Feininger (New York City, July 17, 1871 - January 13, 1956) was the son of German musicians. He was immersed in music and art from a young age, and at 16 he moved to Germany to study music, but soon turned to art. He began his career as a commercial caricaturist, illustrating both political cartoons and comic strips. He created his first painting in 1907, but it wasn’t until around 1911 that his trademark prismatic style was established. He was one of the original artists hired by Walter Gropius to teach at the legendary Bauhaus School, working there as the Master of the graphics workshop from 1919-1926. He returned to New York City in 1936 due to Nazi pressure and continued to paint and teach till his death in 1956.

"Moonlight Haven" ~ Gustav Rudberg.
I have twenty-four different Tumblr “Buzz” themes… and this image fits none of them specifically. However, the image is so moving to me I will include it on my personal page. It does remind me of a couple of rocky coves I used to visit when we lived in mid-west Wales many years ago. Maybe I should use it as the basis of a “SeaScapeBuzz” theme… but where does one stop!

"For Moholy" ~ Kurt Schwitters, 1934 The Art Institute of Chicago.
The Art Institute of Chicago
Kurt Schwitters was a genius of composition, color, typography, texture, contrast, and form. And he did it all with little scraps of paper, old train tickets, and newspaper bits.

"Love Letter" ~ Georgy Kurasov, 2001.
An interesting quote from Kurasov’s website bio: “Americans see Georgy Kurasov as a Russian artist, Russians as an American artist. Painters think he is a sculptor. Sculptors are sure he is a painter. And when Georgy Kurasov thinks of it, he rather like this borderline existence. Perhaps it what makes it possible to be himself, to be unlike anyone else.”
