Manipulated Digital Photograph

ARTIST STATEMENT

Illumination Reflected explores the sky through a contemporary context manipulating and changing the image of fireworks in a night sky. This digital photo series is inspired by my love of fireworks and the memories they unlock. The audience will view something that is recognizable to them and create their own connections. Things are not always what they may seem, and I have created questions about the familiar for the audience. New technology creates new perceptions and interpretations of everyday photos, manipulating and creating new meanings. The longer the work is viewed it will illuminate memories and new perceptions.

ARTWORK PROCESS
