I create abstract digital photographs by shooting into kitchen sinks, boiling pots of water & swimming pools.
My work addresses the problem of time and the disconnection between the head and the heart as I try to reconcile how quickly and fearlessly it passes.
A kitchen sink is a place I can count on. No changes here. A kitchen sink is a metaphor for a life that runs smoothly. A refuge. Boiling pots of water offer places of comfort, of nurturance. Swimming pools, places of floating wombs and vacations. The easy life.
I use an aim & shoot camera & my PC windows photo software to expand what can not be seen by the naked eye. All elements are left intact, respecting the truth of the image. If the naked eye could see what my camera & PC could see, this is what it would look like. I increase the image pixels using the PC’s contrast, temperature and hue controls until the colors explode into shades of oranges, pinks, yellows and light blue.
My work has been described as very contemporary with luscious colors that remind one of experimental films of the 1960’s. Viewers say the richness of the colors invoke great emotion. I create textural works that are ethereal based. The process is very organic as the work initially is unrecognizable but then becomes visible as I manipulate the saturation, hue, tint, contrast and temperature on my Windows photo processing program. My own creative attachment unfolds as I’m creating the work making the work very autobiographical.
