Her | A waterscape - Seattle
a note from the artist
Is mother nature a tangible force? When I really connect with my environment I sometimes feel that she is tangible. The way she connects with me on those rare occasions is not physical. Her touch doesn’t come as a clear thought either. I wouldn't hesitate to claim the connection to be emotional. Its a little like a warm breeze on a cool day. Too brief to catch and you only recognize it once its past. Its a little like the silence between claps; there’s a rhythm to it but if you chase it collapses.
I found her riding illuminated waves one night in Seattle. The ripples of water in front of the ferris wheel became the most intriguing thing in the world to me that night. My camera was not discovering what I found so curious on the surface. Exposure after exposure uncovered nothing but patternless illuminated water. In a moment of clear creativity I set my camera to an eight second exposures and dragged lens with the current and the figure emerged riding the waves. No, a figured emerging being a wave. It was Her.

About the prints: I print on a premium substrate that is unparalleled in depth and luminosity. The material refracts light in such a way that light travels laterally through the paper as well as reflects to the audience creating a brilliant effect that many mistake to be rear illumination. Each print is then face mounted to acrylic and sandwiched to a protective backing. The artwork is then framed or a recessed mount is added to the back to float on the wall. I offer Tabacchino and other handmade framing options. Available starting at 20”x30” and as long as 80” with custom sizes. Below are examples of a 24”x36” in a variety of frames with and without liners. More arrangements are available. Liners are available in Black, White, Beige. See FRAMES in the menu above for more frames and liner options.
