Botanical Series 100 Artist Statement
On view is a sampling of my work. I continue to explore botanical forms, a subject that has engaged me for many years. The botanical forms of nature, rendered primarily in classic black and white, are the subjects of my current work in photography. I draw inspiration from the shapes, textures, colors, and transitional energies of the seasons. The ephemeral, the transforming, and the impermanent are ideas that I explore in my work. Profound philosophical concepts, phrases from spiritual texts or references become titles for some of my photographs of common blossoms allowing the viewer to ponder the significance of their meaning. It's always my intention to communicate the living energy present in these subjects.
My strongest influences are the works of Imogen Cunningham, Georgia O'Keeffe and, Brett Weston, especially those that depict botanical subject matter and abstraction.
