Photograph - Fusion Photography
There is so much that man is and can become. This abstract illustrates my feelings regarding the nature and growth of man. Man is more than simply internal organs. More than a heart, liver, lungs, intestines, or genitals. The essence of man comes from all that he sees and all that he does during a lifetime. Plasticity exists in the development of his mind and body. This results in a recreation of self throughout life. Whatever man becomes, however, in the eyes of God, it must be flawless. As perfect as a butterfly's wing or the anatomy of a moth. Describing this 'sense' of 'vision' in an abstracted fusion photography work was not easy. Just like life, it was frought with trial and error and steps forward and back. There was also judgement. More than once there was dispair in my inability to articulate my thoughts but ultimately joy in seeing the construct come together.

But this defination cannot begin to define the full nature of man, nor can the biblical accounts. He is also not simply a 'male human endowed with qualities, such as strength, considered characteristic of manhood, or a male lover, sweetheart, or husband. But a women is important to a man and this is reflected in the glimpses of women in the work. The muted reds in this image suggest dominance, vitality, and energy. The yellow/gold suggests happiness, hope, light, energy, and love of learning. This is my explanation.
