Metamorphosis

Featured image for “Metamorphosis”
The photographs are from the series, Metamorphosis. Each painterly creation constructed from dozens of layered photographs is driven by my reaction to nature’s extreme seasonal change. I draw upon my work as a fine artist in painting and my lifelong preoccupation with collecting and displaying natural found ephemera. My goal is for each photograph to become much like a shadow box of treasured jewels as I attempt to hold on yet remain captive inside nature’s fleeting, evanescent labyrinth.

My main inspired focus is fine art photography and writing, although I continue my work as a studio artist in painting. I consider myself an ex-city-dweller gone feral as I spend a great deal of time trekking the woods in and around my rural home in upstate New York, chasing paradise with my camera.
