Photograph on wood panel with resin finish
33" x 33"
I like to stimulate people’s senses, photography isn’t just a picture of a place or of a person, it’s a medium to relate and tell a story. I worked to create my own approach to seeing my surroundings and subjects and expressing a vision in a distinct and personal way. I’m curious by nature, constantly looking for the unexpected angle, light and composition, moments where my wandering glance takes notice and I release the shutter. I see my work interpreting what’s around us as an emotional rendering rather than a physical one. Exploring our own souls through art is to give a new frame and a new meaning to the world that surrounds us."
"In my resin series, I look for forms, movement and vibrancy, I explore the use of ideas or concepts through realism, and seek to reveal the relationship between photographic depiction and visual perception. Sometimes juxtaposing and sometimes layering to convey a thought or a statement, imagery can be a powerful channel to visually express an abstract contemplation."
