Sea of Vitality
Artist Statement 3 Seaweed image
My focus is on being up close in nature, photographing the commonly overlooked intimate details of which, with mirror imaging, I create photographic patterns. I find myself enmeshed in design, closer to my natural rhythms exposing patterns in nature with more defined detail. It is a process where I flow with my impulses & follow my curiosity; from being outside in the great outdoors playing & photographing to being inside creating photographic patterns, practicing yoga asana & dancing. I am aligned in my body, both energized & still, blood pumping, breath flowing, engaged & balanced between oppositional forces. I am in my center, seeing the richness in the designs, the colors, the contours of the lines, shapes, characters & personalities. I am seeing meaning mirrored in symbols, extending in scale between the microcosm to the cosmic, bouncing back & forth to where I am feeling the raising of my awareness…I sync into rhythm. Steeping in this sea of sensuality, my vision is enriched with saturation & contrast bringing a new field of vibrant patterns into view.
