Mark Rothko Influence

My recent set of photographs were influenced by the work of painters Rothko and Mondrian who paint blocks of shape and form which was an influence on my work. I was also interested in the geometric forms of cubism and tried to photograph geometric form within everyday surroundings. One composition I found was very similar to Rothko's paintings with its block shaped forms, I thought of Rothko's work when I composed the photograph with the square vent positioned in the center of the composition. I think the photograph would have worked better in colour however it still works in black and white.
