Art Description

Photography: Digital, Color, Photo and Manipulated on Paper.

This piece is distinct for several reasons: the square format, the angled composition, and the obscured nudity. Ava swims leisurely amidst sparkling ripples. The diagonal composition is electric in its energy invoking feelings of summer whimsy. A figure that is not aligned with the vertical or horizontal edge of the picture is a nod to nonconformity. Her nudity is obscured by the folds of the water, making a vivid statement that is not too provocative for the living room. The inevitabilities of the flow life are reflected in the ripples over her body.

I love working with water and other liquids. The ungovernable nature of liquid provides a balance between order and chaos; I can predict the general nature of the image, but the exact details are left to chance. A constantly moving mirror and lens, the liquid provides intricate visual surprises. Ripples, reflections, splashes and drops all participate in a mix of light and shadow to create intricate textures. The patterns of liquid can seem independent of scale and are fascinating no matter how close or far.
