First edition book collecting the digital art of Frederick Yackowski.
The Book: 150 pages @ 8.5" x 10", perfect bound softcover. 50 digital paintings measuring 8" x 8". Each piece will be accompanied by an essay discussing the origin or subject matter. 25 pages of patterns, masks, and brushes used to create my work. Get a behind the scenes glimpse of my artistic process with pieces that are art in their own right.
In early 2011, I started the task of preparing a portfolio to present to MFA Graphic Design Admission boards. MFA Art programs are intensely competitive (some programs accept only a handful of students a year), so I planned to create a series of pieces, in hopes that my best works would garner me an acceptance. Although I have not received an acceptance letter yet, I do now have a body of work that has been a joy to create.
Connective Tissue is a collection of what I believe is the best of my abstract digital paintings. Each piece was created as a work adhering to Game Theory. This game follows one simple rule: after the initial piece, every following piece thereafter includes a manipulation of one or more previous pieces.
My hope is to engage the viewer in a flip-book mindset (encouraging the viewer to compare each piece to each other), with the ultimate goal being the replacement of individual symbolic art forms/shapes with a deeper emotional clarity upon recognizing the Connective Tissue.
I have a deep love for Graphic Design and I look forward to pushing boundaries in my future to create designs that are unique. I have a special affinity for the music industry, and I hope to continue to work with musicians in artistic collaboration.
My future projects include a book of high speed photography and an instructional volume tentatively entitled, "Digital Painting with Photoshop". Those interested in my Graphic Design services can reach me through my website: www.fyackdesigns.com
