A Natural Affair
Artist Calls Accepted Artists
Altadena, California USA
We once had a tangerine tree that bore fruit straight from heaven. Each seedless segment was bursting with honey-scented citrusy goodness. Alas that tree has perished, but I had enough foresight to take a photograph of one year’s harvest, washed in preparation for holiday gifting. That photograph is the basis of Satsuma Sunshine.
My work harkens back to the days when I played with a simple kaleidoscope in my mothers garden. Fragments of the world around me are fodder for my digital lens. I reflect my photographs through mirrors constructed from mathematical algorithms, utilizing fractal space and polar geometry. The resulting blend balances math and art in a perfectly symmetrical mandala form.
I have manipulated my photograph using a modular graphics-synthesizer program where I can pull out specific elements from the photographic imagery, then alter these, layer after layer, to create new compositions of kaleidoscopic reflections. I digitally cut apart and stack the layers in a composite image. Finally, I manipulate shadows and lighting to create an illusion of depth.
