“Art lives from constraints and dies from freedom.” Leonardo Da Vinci. I will stick to flowers for now. They are my subject. They are my conduit for understanding feeling and memory and freedom from punishing narratives. The process of figuring out what to do next after an art show is terrifying. Do I explore other mediums? No. Well, perhaps, for fun, for play. I am a fine art photographer. I photograph flowers. I shall stick to that for the time being.
“Solace is what we must look for when the mind cannot bear the pain, the loss or the suffering that eventually touches every life and every endeavour; when longing does not come to fruition in a form we can recognize, when people we know and love disappear, when hope must take a different form than the one we have shaped for it.”
– David Whyte
I like to spend Saturdays mining my photo archives. I came across some images I made on a trip to Santa Fe in 2014. I see one of my favorite color palettes developing in these images, soft pinks and sky blues.
