Abnormalities seem to be the new normal. Life has changed and we see things in a new light.
Living in isolation for the first three months of the Pandemic in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State, I began to refocus my photography and began exploring a study that I conceptualized in the 1980’s termed: “Between Painting and Photography”.
While in the Adirondacks, I explored the estuaries of the north country, and the reflections of color and light with the movement of water. On returning home, I began to explore the same concepts but in a more controlled environment. My gardens at home are very important to me, I have planted and cared for every plant. In this series of photographs, I see the flora colors liquified, within the layers between the surface and the bottom. The seasonal flora that is alive and in all its glory creates these curious still lifes.
The garden has matured much through the years, as have I. Color and light are my paint, my camera the brush, the water the playground and canvas. I ask the viewer to question is this a painting?, Or a photograph?
All photographs are a single image and not photoshopped. All abstractions are seen and defined by me through the Lens.
