Photography was a source of art therapy for me in the beginning. And, as the beginning passed, I remembered a question asked of me by my Philosophy professor. He asked, “What is this? How do you know it is what it is?”
I realized, then, that I did not want to take a photograph of what depicted the seemingly visual reality of what-is.
I wanted to depict nature in another way, other than how it is observed each day by all, taken for granted, passing by or through it with fixed unemotional stares.
I wanted to create a new sensibility, by presenting it from different angles and aspects, reconstructed, into a new composition of planes, forms, and especially colors, to evoke an emotional response.
