About This Image

Tourmaline Trees

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.
