Wild Garden

Landscape images have been used to represent spiritual ideas since the advent of Art. During the Pictorial photography movement, landscape photographs conveyed spiritual ideas and concepts of the sublime. Pictorial photographers favored gum dichromate printing for its painterly, ethereal qualities.
The tri-color gum dichromate landscapes in this wild flower series investigate spiritual inklings and sublime beauty. While hiking through meadows and woods, and photographing in nature’s gardens I often recall a line from The Private Banquet by the poet Rumi:
“The sense of sight is too weak to take in this reality.”
For this artist, the quirks and flaws in alternative process photographs are an integral part of each image and a way of visualizing the spiritual sublime unseen all around us in the organization of nature.
