Tourmalines are gemstones that occur in virtually every hue. Egyptian legend says that when tourmaline journeyed up from the center of the Earth, it passed over a rainbow, absorbing its colors along the way.
This photograph on metal, with its surreal lavender and orangey hues and glossy finish, reminds me of a jewel that can be hung on the wall; a reminder of the multi-faceted beauty of nature.
This print is massive, requiring a full wall or room with a cathedral ceiling to display it well.
CanopyKinesis Photo Series
This photo is part of a series of photographs about trees, leaves, forests, and woodlands, called CanopyKinesis, all of which are printed on luminescent, high gloss aluminum sheets. In a departure from my generally realistic landscape scenes, the photos in this series are mostly semi- and fully abstract. Each piece depicts an emotional-figurative aspect of the arboreal landscape, rather than attempting to be a faithful representation of a specific place.
The images in this series were created by combining in-camera manipulations (camera movement, multiple and over-exposures, changing focus during exposure, etc.) and post-production digital painting techniques.
About Photos on Metal
Photos on Metal are created by a special process that infuses the image into specially coated aluminum sheets that have a durable high gloss finish, creating a brilliant, lasting artwork that seems to glow from within.
