My intention is to disrupt recognition of an object to create an experience coming from elements of surface, light and merging fields of color. The shapes are fragmented by, angle, perspective, and depth of perception. Color blocks are central to energy and movement. Shape and color interlock that is related but abstract. This isn’t intended to disorient but to arouse in the viewer an experience derived from the tension and complexity of the image.
Often recognizable forms give a handhold to the viewer to get some idea of what they’re looking at in real space. They are solid, white and discordant with fields of color. The rigid line plays against the amorphous riot. They are flat against images that appear to have depth. They are a hard stop to rein it all in.
Windows and L.A. Pool are on a place over different times of the day and year. California and Water often do the same. They talk about how fluctuation in light creates transformation. Same place, different minute, different photo because of where the sun is in the sky. They are fleeting. They are fluid. There is possibility. There is no decisive moment.
Each viewer’s encounter is individualized. In the same image, one can have an internal mood or feeling of chaos or tranquility. One can feel contemplative or exuberant, confined or free. They are dark and still. They shimmer with energy and light. The photo is broken down and rebuilt so that what is simple becomes complex. The pulling back on the photo of the image is key to pushing the viewer’s experience from the photo.
