WATER // LIGHT - EXPLORATIONS OF NATURAL FORM

The topic of this series - Water and Light - examines the fundamental building blocks of life, their raw power, beautiful symmetry, and variety of textures.

In this new series of triptychs, natural elements serve as the pallet for abstract expressionist compositions.

These pieces consist of transitory moments captured in various remote locations throughout Iceland.

The focus is on the minuté, the most basic aspects of life, rather than on the grand vistas surrounding these moments.

From hundreds of images captured in each location, the artist carefully selects and manipulates individual frames into a unified whole, which showcase the subtly beauty of natural form.

The compositions operate in the same fashion as the canvases of Abstract Expressionist painters of the 1970s, seemingly drawing order out of chaos.

While the finished compositions operate in an expressionistic style, they are profoundly modern in their approach to the subject.

There is a direct correlation to the work Harold Edgartons' early explorations into freezing motion. Each still frame is a high speed capture of 1/6400 of a second, capturing formations of water normally not visible to the human eye.
