fretting and strutting his love upon the stage
Fine Art Photography
As a fine artist with a background in painting, printmaking, and sculpture, I now use photography as a source of ideas and a tool to create. My photographs are portraits/still lifes of nature’s forms, from flowers, dried leaves, twigs, the bark of trees and mushrooms in their various stages of growth and natural decline. I have been collecting and photographing natural forms for quite some time and I am always looking for that special shape of nature that inspires me. The camera brings out qualities that one cannot see with the naked eye when these forms are on the ground. I photograph indoors, using natural light and a reflective surface. The challenge is to create exciting and interesting compositions to entice the viewer to see these images in a new and different way. They created a new life of their own through the lens of my camera.
…fretting and strutting his love upon the stage – I had photographed these mushrooms when I first found them in full growth, milky white, strange shapes and a thick stem. When dried several days later they took on new color, different shapes and very deep textures. When I photographed them again, I added miniature spidery succulent plants to give the composition some contrast and bring it to another dimension – mysterious, quirky and different.
For each group of new photographs I like to create a series from four, six or eight compositions so that I have one, two or a group of photographs that work well together. All images are limited editions, signed and numbered, printed on archival smooth cotton paper.
