Give Up the Ghost.

"Give up the Ghost." Death is one of our oldest curiosities. And while we might be curious about the macabre, we also prefer things to make sense to us. Halloween gives us that bit of control, of exposing ourselves to what seems scary. I envisioned creating a creepy graveyard scene out of a real one. Can you imagine ghosts floating in and out of this scene?






Black and white abstract pictures for minimalistic decor with maximum impact.

When you are on a mission to simplify your home decor, use the power of black and white wall art to remove the excess. Why upset a color scheme? Using abstract black and white photography in your décor eliminates the distraction of color and adds depth. Powerful images convey emotion, and simplistic black and white photography pictures cut through the noise to evoke a mood.

I approach my abstract black and white pictures with simplicity in mind. Using order, harmony, and repetition, a photo wall or minimalist print in a corner of a room commands notice. With the absence of color, we remove one more distraction. Lines, angles, and shapes tell a story. Minimalistic abstract images are subtle and sophisticated.

As an example, the symbolic representation of yoga poses with toy army men are more powerful in black and white rather than military green. In the absence of color, the spotlight is on the way the warrior balances physical strength with inner peace despite outside pressures. Set off your yoga studio with a focus on the symbolic teachings of yoga poses.

And although green is my favorite color, removing that spectrum from the forest in a mountain scene, we are free to concentrate on the peak as a symbol of elevated wisdom and strength. We find our meaning in the steep slopes, the rugged summit, and the deep valleys they form. We see in the ranges, the cliffs, and the upheavals our progress at overcoming obstacles. Black and white landscape photography prints are simple and yet allow us to explore complexity.

Without the color blue, we concentrate on the movement, softness, and power water can wield as it gathers in a river, or falls down a cliff. You can feel the mist from the waterfall, hear the roar of the surf, and smell the freshness of falling rain. Achieve a minimalist art look in your decor with the simplicity of water in modern black and white photography.

Black and white nature pictures show us the intricacies of a plant’s symmetry. Just like the lines in a vine or reeds, the lines in black and white architecture converge and balance as well. With the simplicity of abstract black and white art, we recognize the way everything is tied together. Black and white afford us a deeper appreciation of all the little moments.
