Art Description

New Media: Digital and Photo on Paper.

This was a rather interesting artistic process whereby I took a photo of a person's overhead reflection onto glass as they were floating in a pool. I later painted upon the photo to make it appear as though they were underwater and playing with fire. Fire, of course, cannot burn underwater in the absence of... magic. This thus evolved into a fantasy art piece.

I choose to do underwater (and surface water) photography of people because I am physically disabled and do not stand or walk well for very long on land. However, I am able to get around quite well in the low gravity environment of water. I do enjoy the oftentimes surreal effects water has on my photographic subjects. I especially enjoy the way in which water bends light waves and sends them bouncing about everywhere.
