crossconnectmag: Abstract Expressionist Gifs by... crss
Cross Connect favorite Xponentialdesign is Dominic Pons of the Montreal suburbs and he primarily makes his living selling motion design templates and loops on Videohive. The loops he creates on Tumblr are his research lab, and by design he works in many different styles. This ‘research’ is often visually compelling and here you can see one strand of his work that to me really stands out. It echoes the work of great abstract expressionist painters like Jackson Pollock and Cy Twombly, work that always had a strong sense of motion. These gifs are the tangible manifestation of that. True action painting. I wonder what Clement Greenberg would think.
