Macro photography is my "filler." It's kind of like a good bread with your meal. You don't have to eat it, but it's yummy and it balances out your meal. Photography is just like that for me. My main art medium is concrete and acyclic paint. I don't have to have the photography to come up with my ideas, but without it I would lack the inspiration. Photography also reminds me and teaches me about color. What better teacher could an artist have than nature. Nature gets its right.
So next time you are out on a hike, by the lake, in a field, or even in your backyard, take time to see and learn how colors work together. When you do see photography on my blog, it does mean I'm busy with my concrete art or painting. I wish I had something new to show you everyday, but I just can't work that fast and concrete does take a bit longer to pour, set and cure; and paintings do take more than one day for me. And pllease be patient if you're waiting for my new creations, they will be posted soon!
The nature of life is change, a slice of time which is unique from the moment I capture it. I try and stay tuned into the presence of each moment, so I am able to see the beauty that surrounds me. Even though beauty is subjective, it is something I recognize unmistakably and immediately. Beauty has the ability to inspire me. What is the purpose of art if not to inspire and conjure emotions and ideas, whatever they may be? From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course to canvas and sculpture. I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it will not always be obvious, but my goal is to have the viewer see in a new way and feel a new appreciation for what is around us.
