My vision uses the mushroom’s bizarre and varied shape, alien textures and intricate detail combined with composition and lighting to create crisp images with a dose of abstraction. The abstraction makes them unique and allows for multiple interpretations depending on the viewer’s imagination to use their memories and experiences to build content.
I have taken a minimalist presentation against a square black background not to distract from the images powerful poetic voice.
While it has been said that my mushroom images are reminiscent of Edward Weston’s “Bell Pepper” series. I continue to develop my own artistic approach with subjects selected based on what speaks to me emotionally. While the artistic style has evolved to echo that of the Group f/64, I continue to experiment with different approaches, presenting new and innovative artwork.
