Paint & Pastel
These images have been created using intuitive techniques. The image is formed without an image in mind. Each stroke and color choice is based on intuition and a sense of playfulness and curiosity in the moment. The artist then sits with the painting and lets the mind find familiarity and understanding. Through this process the artist can communicate with the subconscious and create stepping stones of self-knowledge.
These images explore the web prisms of the Bowl and Doily Spider, Frontinella communis. The use of a portrait lens and shallow depth of field allows for the prismatic breaking of light through the webs in certain conditions.
