Broken glass is transformed by the ocean, creating soft, gentle forms of color. Here are three arrangements made in the bottom of a five-inch square vase. Set on a light box, small ridges in the bottom of the vase refract the light leaving the black frame lines. Designed as a vertical but works in a horizontal presentation as well.
The creative process is unique, all done by hand. An archival pigment print on Somerset Velvet fine-art paper is affixed to board and sealed with a clear-coat for UV protection. No glass is needed, and the image is float mounted in a hardwood maple frame. The result is striking color, clarity and uncanny three-dimensionality.
Most of my work is drawn from nature, but I enjoy creating images whose origins may not be readily clear. This kind of abstract view often leads to artworks that are intriguing, but also a bit mysterious. Always, the interaction is intended to be peaceful and relaxing.
