New Series: ARNO

Arno is a river in Florence, Italy, and the name means Water Flower. I didn't even know that when I began shooting flora in the water. I actually discovered that when I was looking for titles for the nine completed pieces. My Google search led me to a baby name site full of water-related names for boys and girls that helped me with names for all the pieces, plus a few more in reserve when I need them (and I will need them.)

 

This series has been a life-and-sanity saver, honestly. I'm used to doing water portraits with people during these hot Texas summers, and I desperately needed to work in/with water, even if my typical muses were unavailable due to the pandemic. 

What I love so much about working with water is that it adds an element of spontaneity. The movement of water causes the subject to flow and bend and move in beautifully natural ways that I don't always expect. I am often delighted by what unfolds.

It would not surprise anyone who knows me that flora in water would replace humans in water during these socially distant days (months.) I have always been in awe of the designs and patterns of nature. It is graceful and intricate while at the same time powerful and majestic. It excites both the scientist and the artist in me.

So far I have completed nine pieces and am already working on more. 

These pieces are printed on Canon Luster Photographic Paper. It's kind of a middle area between matte and glossy. I like the paper for its depth of color without the shine of glossy papers.

All 13x19" prints have the image centered with a white border on all sides for ease in trimming and framing, and each piece will be signed in the bottom right corner.

I am a photographer from the American South, working in experimental portraiture and fine art photography. When I am not working with other humans creating art with intention, I find myself drawn to finding art in the ordinary, noticing more than making art as I see it unfold right in front of me. My images are often organic or earthy but may also be raw or quirky. Whatever the subject, I want my art to provoke a visceral reaction - to cause the viewer to smile, laugh, swear, tear up, gasp, or forget to breathe. As I have begun to play with other art forms, creating art without my camera, I see that desire to inspire a feeling from the viewer manifest itself even more. The works I have made with brush strokes rather than shutter clicks are attempts to express and share some moment of overwhelming emotion. When I am making these pieces, I am like a child playing. Whether it be a feeling of calm or joy, a recent experience or a memory, my hope is that the movement and color in the image resonates in a similar way for the viewer.
