This work takes images of local flora with a very limited depth of field and utilizes Photoshop to merge multiple copies of the image into a new creation - the result is unusual, kaleidoscopic and suggestive of the human form. The limited depth of field shifts attention away from the form of the flower towards the various colors of flower. These vivid colors add to the suggestive nature of the work, which is inspired by Joseph Stella's use of vibrant color and unique framing of structures. The abstract artists of the early 1900s who approached a blank canvas without thought or definition of the work they would create, share similarity to my own subconscious method of working through the digital process. I begin with a blank canvas and from there paste, rotate and merge copies of the image together; shaping and forming surreal compositions.
