Patrick Donlon is an LA based artist and designer. He’s recently released a series of really, really beautiful Digital Projections that see various photos collaged and mashed together resulting in colorful imagery that could easily be confused for tiny landscapes full of microorganisms. They’re quite fascinating.
Each piece features a photographic base that is folded over itself several times. Some you can see the seams while others are almost impossible to tell where one part begins and where the other ends. Some of his images are made from photos of buildings and some are made from images of natural life: regardless of what Donlon’s Projections are composed of, they end up looking like tessalated, fuzzy organic life.
“These images have been transformed by using digital photo, intuition, and various computer applications,” Donlon explains in a very quick statement, adding that they use architecture and organic environments as the basis for the pieces. The soft color frames are also a very nice touch as they highlight a minor–but pretty–color within the image. Donlon’s Projections really excel when they get weird and look like a close-up of a jeweled beetle’s exoskeleton. He should think about making these into t-shirts because I would totally wear it.
Donlon has a pretty decent amount of images on his Behance page which you can check out here. We’ll be keeping an eye on him as we’re totally into this body of work.
