Among the services art performs for us is making the familiar unfamiliar in order to reveal a deeper reality and meanings that may not be recognized with the native eye. This is especially true with impressionist and post-impressionist photography. “Impressions From Nature” is a series of abstract and semi-abstract photographic images of natural scenes that have been digitally manipulated post-capture. All images begin as conventional photographs, and retain the organic elements of the living world. Most images contain recognizable elements of the natural scene. The images are intended to convey the photographer’s digitally created impressions inspired by the original scene, thereby generating a fresh and different appreciation of the colors and textures of nature. All of the Impressions From Natures series are printed on large aluminum panels. Most of this series was produced in 2014 and 2015.
