New: My photo, Still Life: Rock, will be included in the online exhibition Seeing Beyond: Photography and Digital Art, hosted by the Rhode Island Watercolor Society, Pawtucket, RI, from Aug. 20th - Sept.r 17th. Here is an image of Still Life: Bark, which they declined to include (lol):
This photograph is from the series Still Life, which includes images of forest ephemera that are both representational and abstracted. The series is produced using alternative digital processes without the use of filters, special lighting, or color corrections. The in-camera effects results in the subversion the usual photographic system of color, focus, and perspective. This 24 x 30 in. framed photo will be in the exhibition Convergence: Contemporary Photography, at the Indianapolis Art Center, IN, from August 22, 2022 – October 21, 2022. This work and others from this series are now available in my SHOP.
I am pleased to have this photograph included in The Rhode Island Center for Photographic Arts' 8th International Contemporary Photography Exhibition, April 21 - May 13, 2022, chosen by juror Jessica Roscio.
Photographs visualize the time in which they are created. These works stand on their own while drawing the viewer into what might be beyond the frame; they suggest a larger story. I was drawn to the pieces where something seemed a bit off, out of place, or out of the ordinary, slightly surreal, but still conceivable within everyday life.They could have been found or staged, with an elaborate artist statement or without—something was relatable to make me wonder why it was made, how it was made, and why that particular moment was captured. These photographers merge the past and present, or capture one fleeting moment, but overall stretch the definition of the medium through materials, process, and challenging tradition.
