Call for Entries Accepted Artists

Floral Mix 1
Matisse’s comparison of his art to a “good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue” resonated with me. When I started photographing flowers, I realized that I wanted viewers to dive into my photographs and float in color. Flowers are vital to life on earth, yet they dazzle us with their beauty and delicacy, and surprise us with their strength.
I started combining multiple images to emboss my essence and joy of color and movement into the images, the way playing a musical instrument lets you enter into the music instead of just observe.
I hope the spirit of the flowers is conveyed to the viewer through my involvement with the form.
