"Driven to Abstraction" features the abstract photography of twenty artists from the PhotoArts Group (PAG). It consists of thirty realistic photographs of objects and scenes which are not readily identifiable. All of the works are based on the capture of a single image by a camera. However, colors, shapes, textures, forms, and lines are emphasized over representation. The works achieve their abstract quality often by focusing on details or parts of larger objects and scenes. The viewer often cannot identify the realistic subject matter. Part of the enjoyment is guessing about the original photographic capture. When it is revealed, the viewer may be thrilled and startled. Colors and textures are sometimes enhanced by digital editing techniques.
