Colin Tresadern
Colin Tresadern (b. 1954) is the July 2008 Digital Color Artist of the Month. Colin is inspired by the design of traditional Japanese interiors, and the ideal that 'less is more.' Colin believes that visual opposition and contrast achieve balance and harmony. Colin is also inspired by Kabbalah, and explores mystic concepts which, being essentially abstract concepts, are ideally expressed using abstract visual images.

Colin creates paintings using elemental geometric forms in a non-representational abstract space, in pure minimal designs combining interactive elements of colour, plane, and line. Aesthetic balance is achieved through the use of asymmetrical opposition in the constructional elements of the designs. This complexity underlies their apparent simplicity and the use of primary colours and primary values. Emphasising order, balance, and formal structure, the paintings are reduced to their fundamental essentials and core of self-expression. http://RenownedArt.com/digitalcolor/

Baby Origami Cranes
The Temple of Community is building a large Crane Temple at Burning Man this year. The Temple will fill the void with a place of contemplation, grieving and letting go. It will be a place to say and express farewells. Artists who visit the temple have been asked to create their own wooden scaled-down versions of an origami crane. These smaller cranes will be gathered around the base of the main structure. Please make sure that your crane won't take flight on the playa winds! A burn platform large enough for the baby cranes will be provided. http://tribes.tribe.net/templeofcommunity
