Visions of Nature
In this collection I have sought to explore the concept of “defamilarization,” according to which art strives to render the familiar as unfamiliar in order to inspire fresh perspectives, new ways of seeing the colors, shapes, and patterns of familiar objects. Includes an introductory essay on the inspirations behind the series, including leading Twentieth Century figures and schools of art, including Viktor Schklovsky, who originated the idea of “defamiliarization;” Abstract Expressionism; and the artists Vassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, and Jackson Pollock. Large format landscape 13 x 11 inches. More than 50 original photographs, 78 pages, with an Introduction.
