26 imagesFlora Abstraction: I focus on private and intimate flora settings. I bring small landscapes to life, creating pieces that are soft spoken, with translucent, luminescent colors and fine textures that are smooth to the touch. I focus on esthetically clean compositions that emphasize organic movements based on color and shapes. Many times I choose to print these images on a thin aluminum sheet. The metal spreads light, colors and playfulness to the environment where it hangs like an abstract rendition of tranquility. It also manifests the translucency of light that I wish to capture.
26 imagesIn the series “Seasons of light” I am mostly focusing my camera on leaves in simple outdoor settings, fashioning images of quiet and moody ambience that opens the way for the viewer to explore. I believe light and color coexist dramatically with the coming of nightfall, causing forms to become even more dissolved. Leaves melt into shimmering shapes, patterns, and silhouettes. At dusk, dream and reality overlap, and my childhood imaginations toy with the viewer’s conscious and subconscious perception of reality through the transformation of form, light and color. While working on this project I used a hand held medium format camera; 67RZ Mamiya. My intention was to explore film cross processing between slide film and C 41 color printing as a medium and my communications skills through the lens. Hours were spent in the darkroom printing playfully with vivid color wheels. I found great joy in the ability to express myself through color, abstractions, and motion.
27 imagesString of Life; is a series of work where I explore the impact of infrastructure within our lives. When I look at civilization and how we operate our cities and live our lives with structure, I then find inspiration in its form, line and pattern. We find the same structure adopting it self and developing new ways to endure life within nature. Through my various cameras I choose to use the fabric of nature as my brickwork in a combination of darkroom printing and Photoshop skills to generate images and creations similar to an alternative process photograph or an ultra modern high tech image.
