Color, 8.5”x8.5”, 89 full color art pages, 96 pages total. My award winning art begins with sun light, the source of energy that powers all life on earth. It represents the vitality and exuberance of life itself. My work/play attempts to capture that exuberance and its variety. My palette is an array of glass prisms which creates the rich colors of the rainbow. Adjusting the individual prisms makes additional color combinations beyond the normal rainbow of a single prism. Using lens, filters, reflections, foam board, glue, paint, overhead transparencies and other objects I create various light affects and take digital photographs of the results. The final process involves using a computer to manipulate the images (such as crop, cut, paste, etc.). I classify my art as mostly non-representational abstract mixed media.
