The Strata images were captured from the water along the south shore of Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. These sandstone cliffs have weathered and eroded over time to create remarkable abstractions of color and texture.
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.
