Inspired by the Swimming Pool Illusion by Leandro Ehrlich whose installation is on view at the 21st Century Museum of Art of Kanazawa Japan, I was attracted to the strong painterly quality, the beauty and disorientation caused by seeing the world through water without actually getting wet.
This series was taken while on a small boat in the Inside Passage between Juno and Sitka, Alaska. It captures the interaction between water and sky and the inherent abstraction and design that we create as interloper. It reveals the character of nature and the dynamic relationship between our environment and ourselves.
As I explore the world I am compelled to look through and into spaces which reveal hidden worlds to me. Here is just a sampling, a few examples.
DESIGN IN THE EVERYDAY
We find beauty wherever we look if we keep our eyes attuned to the design in the everyday,
WANDERING THE WORLD
Capturing the specificity and universality of place wherever we explore.
The Portrait Series centers on exploring the unusual and unexpected encounters we have with one another and ourselves in the process.
FINDING THE UNEXPECTED
This is work done while exploring the Paris Metro. Here is a glimpse of one of the nine images in full size and a tease of the others.
The Beauty of Flowers-
I love flowers especially tulips, whether in my own backyard or in Holland.
This is new work in development —Here I combine the natural world in unexpected ways and often add the built environment.
