About the Art
With all photography, mastery of darkroom techniques is essential for revealing the emotional character of a scene that inspired an image to be captured in the first place. Today’s digital darkroom offers a vast assortment of tools and filters. In learning how to use them I came upon a technique for creating an abstract image from a photo which really captured my imagination!
Extending and enhancing the technique eventually led to my abstract mandala images. They are characterized by a richness of color and detail. While most are discarded, the ones I keep are because I find them very compelling visually and emotionally evocative.
About the prints
My images are printed using pigment inks on archival-quality Fujifilm photo paper with a lustre finish. Interested in a larger format? Let’s talk!
About the Artist
I am a faculty member in the Mathematics Department at a local college, and have always been drawn to the intersection of mathematics and the visual arts. I am also an administrator of a Photoshop Elements forum which brings me into contact with other photographic artists on a daily basis. Woven through all of that is my life-long enjoyment in making music; these days it is music of the Baroque and Renaissance, played on the recorder and viola da gamba.
