My artwork all begins with my digital camera. Photography is not my principle aim but it is my primary tool. My natural inclination has always been to abstract the visual world and has, through practice, been honed to a hyper-vigilance to light and shadow, form and color and the framed and flattened view of everything that passes before my eyes.
Images from the camera are left unaltered or manipulated in order to discover the treasure hiding within the pixels. I liken this process of discovery to that of a sculptor who seeks to remove the excess stone from around the figure that was always inside the block of marble.
This image, as with all the works in the Hidden Vistas Collection, explores the archetypical shapes, colors and compositions that signal our imaginations to create landscape out of what we are looking at.
Watering Hole is a photograph of oxidization and rust patterns formed from water dripping down a large cast iron wall. Our eyes and imagination are tricked into seeing a Western vision of water, hills and sky. Find your way down to the shoreline to parch your thirst from a long journey.
Watering Hole makes a great companion to form a diptych with my other work entitled Heading Home.
