Water, Water, Everywhere

September 10, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Another of my images has been selected for a group show at PhotoPlace Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont. This time the theme is WATER, and the show – including my image – will be on display in the gallery from September 4th through 29th. (Online exhibition, gallery details and hours here).

The exhibition was juried and curated by Connie Imboden, a photographer and educator who’s work can be seen in the permanent collections of major art galleries across the world, including New York, San Fransisco, Paris and Cologne.

To quote the gallery; “The PhotoPlace Gallery exhibition WATER features photographs that capture water in all of its myriad physical and metaphorical forms. We are born from it. We cannot live without it. Its beauty captivates us. Its floods devastate us.”

My selected image is “Shore Line”:  a semi-abstract contrasting the still, flat surface of an estuary outflow with the turbulence of the crashing ocean, separated only by a slim sand bar. This image is another example of my obsession with abstracting reality into lines, shapes, textures and colors, and although the image shown is in it’s “natural” orientation, I was very tempted to suggest it be hung on-end, or even upside-down! (It’s hard with a monitor, but try turning your head!). Cool, huh?
