The Forest Abstracted

In this series of work, diverse compositions of the forest
are photographed and brought into the studio environment.
At this point they are studied and augmented within then use of digital technology.
Many times images from diverse seasons are composited to create a new gestalt.
Combined images of the lush and densely populated forest floor are joined with pristine
forest depictions captured while meandering through the woods after a dense New England blizzard.
The sensual contours of the untouched snow create a seductive counterpoint
to the tumultuous dense thicket found at the end of summer.
