Art inspired by the Renaissance, Celtic knots, fantasy art, and storybooks. I create traditional paintings, digital art and photograph knights, fair maidens, fairies, bagpipers, flowers and a few meadows too.
Abstract Design with Textured Black and White Loops and Detailed Center

Please note that the watermark in the lower right will not appear on any ordered prints or products.
This is an abstract contemporary design that I made for home decor, namely pillows and matching prints, and is the closest in the series to the original art. This piece has a little texture to it too.
Stripes and amorphous shapes that seem to be strung together dominate the composition, while the center seems ordered and ornate in comparison. This adds to the contemporary feeling of the design. So do the eye shapes in the middle of some of the shapes.
Black and white stripes signify good and evil, black and white thinking, harm vs. help, innocence vs. knowledge, being able to see vs. not being able to see, exposed vs. hidden, charity vs. crime, "either/or", everything or nothing. Stripes in earlier times were a sign of rebellion, but these days they have come to signify duality and multi-tasking. Black and white are the extremes in terms of stripe designs.
While black dominates the design, white encircles the stripes and also connects them to each other. A white border also encloses the composition.
If you want to mix and match with a color version of this design, please look in my shop under "Home Decor Abstract" and there are red, green, blue and purple versions. In a big room with long sofas, it might break up the monotony to have two versions of the same design while not straying too far into another tangent.
My little signature in the lower right has been taken off for pillows, duvets, blankets and shower curtains to keep with the tradition of home decor.
