I have been pursuing the non-representational photographic expression for much of my life and have increasingly pushed the boundary of traditional representational photography into what I am calling “Dreamscapes”, a term I first learned from the highly-regarded Canadian photographer André Gallant, with whom I took a workshop back in my film days.
This exhibition is something of a compendium of the various ways in which I’ve been creating dreamscapes. Certain images I’ve chosen to illuminate some of the path I’ve been exploring starting with Study In Blue, a simple close-up of a small section of a blown glass sculpture. Other small fragments of reality are found in Lilies, My World In A Drop, Chinese Garden, and Yin/Yang At The Hui, none of which have undergone post-capture tweaking other than tonal and color correction.
The exhibition opens May 27, 2016, at Gallery XII, 412 E. Douglas Avenue in Wichita, Kansas and closes on June 21, 2016.
