New abstract photographic art: Fusión

New abstract photographic art: Fusión

Here’s a new artwork I’ve just released, from a photograph I made in Spain.

It’s titled Fusión and is 36 x 24 inches (plus the frame).

I printed the photo on Hahnemühle metallic canvas. After mounting it on pine stretcher bars, I embellished the canvas with gold foil transfer.

It was sold at my gallery to a collector in Warwick, England.

 

New Work: Shapeshifter No. 11

New Work: Shapeshifter No. 11

During Autumn 2018, I produced a body of work in abstract photography that, in many ways, fulfills my highest vision as an artist. (This is what I’ve been working toward for many years!) Today, I’m pleased to present one of my first releases of finished art derived from the series.

My aim with this series was to create a set of images that share some common attributes and visual style, but that also have a lot of variation from one image to the next.

While I was making the photographs I was observing the dynamic, captivating graphic elements and working to create intriguing, surreal images with an organic feel.

I’ve titled the series Shapeshifter; each individual photograph simply uses a unique number designator. This naming ties in with the nature of the subject matter—through only slight changes in my viewpoint, the reflective surface revealed an infinite variety of shapes, colours and patterns… Truly morphing in front of my eyes!

Shapeshifter No. 11 displays  a minimalist composition, with a single black line running diagonally across the picture space. This is surrounded by subtle, organic textures in a muted, pastel colour palette.

As with much of my abstract work, this is offered as a mixed media piece, which I create by printing the photograph onto canvas and then hand-embellishing the canvas surface with transparent acrylic, bringing out the contours and textures of the underlying image. It is 16×24 inches, unframed ‘gallery-wrap’ style and delivered ready-to-hang.

Thus, each is produced to-order and is a one-of-a-kind, unique original. This art makes fantastic décor and a real conversation piece in any contemporary interior!

New Commission: Fountain of Truth (mixed media)

New Commission: Fountain of Truth (mixed media)

A private art collector in Northampton, England has commissioned me to create a bespoke work using my abstract photograph ‘Fountain of Truth’.

I’ve printed the image on canvas at 30×45 inches, plus a black border for stretching.

Next I will use brushes and sponges to apply hand embellishing with transparent acrylic, building up the image in layers.

The finished work will hang in the master bedroom of the residence.

You can commission your own bespoke artworks (at less cost than you might think) by contacting me.

New Abstract Photograph: Intersections (Man + Nature)

New Abstract Photograph: Intersections (Man + Nature)

In 2014, Ruth and I led another private photo tour around Tuscany, Italy. One of our group’s favorite towns was San Gimignano, an architectural wonder from medieval times.

We first photographed the iconic village from the surrounding area, then gradually worked our way into the city. Everyone made compelling images depicting all facets of this magical town.

While I was wandering around the back alleys, I discovered an outdoor restaurant patio attached to a hotel. Lovely glass panels were all around, each reflecting and refracting the afternoon sun as it came down in slivers between the tall stone towers surrounding the courtyard.

This photograph shows a closeup of the refraction of glass panels on a textured fabric surface. Although it’s far from the typical photograph of San Gimignano, for me it epitomizes the special vignettes that can be found in every little corner of the world.

As with all my photographs, fine art prints and original abstract mixed media works are available, so get in touch if you can envision this adorning your walls.
