Between Painting and Photography
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.
I see illuminated landscapes melt into the water, fusing to the surface. The water becoming both transparent and opaque as the currant creates tension between the surface and the bottom. 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.
