Art Description

Photography: Color, Digital on Paper.

From the original 'Wave' series I was given some guidelines for exploring the photograph and producing a set of colours with the intention of pushing the depth and forming a richer abstract to the work. Are you seeing the sea and clouds or the mountains or both. Are you underwater or is there a wave of an energy reading.

Quote
"I realize I gravitated to it because I saw it as something
you could potentially mis-identify. I played with the pic (I do this with any image that inspires me to be further
inspired and to figure out my attraction) and realize now why I liked it so much - when you alter the temps and
color saturate, it becomes a richter-esque abstract but Better! lol. Could be a wave, an energy reading, sunset
behind mountains, close-up on a sliced agate, etc. I love that it has mystery.
In my mind, your composition has everything a 2-D piece should have - full, glorious color with areas of absolute
blacks, greys and a pure light source you can't help but be riveted by. All this because the original photo is so good.
Just like the original wave (and the "real" ocean!) it's a mesmerizing paradox: energetic and tranquil all at the
same time. And, has so many tiny details for the eye to consider and explore.
Printed on a high quality Premium Luster Photographic Paper,
these Wave Colours are produced as a Limited edition 2 of 5 signed numbered and dated by the artist along with a certificate of authenticity.
