Artist's Statement

My greatest pleasure is in evolving my art by experimentation with both IMPRESSIONIST and ABSTRACT photography with a smattering of everything inbetween.  Whether it is with my camera or cellphone, I'm never bored.

The proposition of achieving a good result by moving the camera has intrigued me from day one, trying to create the not so picture perfect, sharp image.   my preference is to give it a twist and to be less "record like" with an artistic  flair.   

This being said, my imagination takes me to a different place where I want to view my photography through "impressions" and “abstractions” rather than absolutes.  

Abstraction takes me to a different place, with form, pattern, shape and colour, with no beginning or end and no representational elements, I want to take the viewer down a different path of discovery. By immersing myself with what is in front of me and removing the detail, I'm left with rays of light and dark areas, spaces which may not need to be filled and are unidentifiable objects.

 

With both impressionism and abstract photography I use the camera as a tool, ‘my paintbrush’. My desire is to alter the context through the lens and create a different visual format.  

These two distinctly different styles are meant to provoke a thought or question through its visual content.

It's a constant journey of discovery which is never boring.
