PHOTOGRAPHS: Limited edition archival pigment prints, signed and numbered, on museum quality paper and also mounted on various materials.
THEME: The contorted silhouettes of trees, after leaves have fallen, are quietly surviving the effects of seasonal change – a recollection of nature’s mutable power. The limbs and tree fragments form expressive two-dimensional and abstract designs. Some images emphasize realistic close-up details that reveal the trees’ anatomical features, which are surprisingly human-like, while other images display the distinctive characteristics of animal contours. Presented with directness and simplicity, one group of photographs appears almost monochromatic whereas another group of photographs, more complex, introduces subtle color tonalities. Trees are the memory of earth’s past, and they linger in the collective memory of mankind.
TECHNIQUE: Standard digital techniques, occasionally using wide-angle lenses.
