A one man show featuring an eclectic variety of my work, including examples from my abstract “Vortex” series, the Tr?Z collection and some contemporary photography runs April 2nd through the 25th at Langdon Center in Granbury.
This will be the first formal show exhibiting prints from the Vortex collection and the first time anywhere to show images from my newest Tr?Z project. Winter trees have always been a favorite of mine due to being able to actually appreciate the native structure of the tree – unencumbered by leaves. I prefer shooting historic buildings in Winter for this same reason: you can see “through” the surrounding trees and better grasp the entire structure.
This resulted in exploring vivid, dramatic processing to ultimately produce the Tr?Z styling. Dramatic, vivid and visceral, this series will introduce the viewer to winter trees as they have never been seen before.
The Vortex collection has been a work in progress since the beginning of 2012. Created primarily with the designer market in mind, this series is characterized by symmetrical, dramatic and vivid images in diamond or square configurations. Available in four sizes, the Vortex series will fit virtually any wall space or budget.
While this show technically “opens” on April 2nd, the collection will be open to the public on March 31st during the monthly Last Saturday Gallery Night from 5-9 pm.
Stop by and say “Howdy.”
So if you’re in the Granbury neighborhood, check out Langdon Center.
As I explore my creative potential, the world around me takes on an entirely new look – at least to me. Not that this is necessarily an entirely “new” thing. I’ve always seen the world as a cartoon. Perhaps this is Mel Blanc’s fault. And maybe it’s the 60s that did it. But whatever the cause, my view of “reality” is slightly (sometimes more) askew from what you see. As a result, I spend more and more time tweaking my images to achieve a specific look. Each image is different – and requires it’s own “touch” to convey the unique quality that drew me to compose this particular shot and release the shutter.
In so doing, I have set the stage for the metamorphosis to begin. A lot of Photoshop, filtering, hand-editing and layers are required to achieve the final image. This can be very time-consuming, but it is a labor of love.
I the case of this particular theme, the end result is… BarnZ!
- BarnZ like you’ve never seen before.
- BarnZ with colors and perspective unique in every way.
- BarnZ foreign to our world.
- BarnZ where I feel I am starting to convey the way I see our world.
So enjoy my BarnZ
