Impressions of Nature is a working project exploring post-capture digital manipulation of nature images. One function of art is to make the familiar unfamiliar in order to reveal a deeper reality, leading us to meanings that may not immediately be recognized with the native eye. This is especially true with expressionist and post-impressionist photography. These images begin as conventional photographs, retaining recognizable organic elements of the living world. The images convey digitally created impressions inspired by the original scene, thereby generating a fresh and different appreciation of the colors and textures of nature. Images in this series are printed on large aluminum panels. A book is in process.
