Conceptual SEE THROUGH

It is a celebration of beauty in the form of experiments with digital image layering techniques and elements with transparency. The highlight of this series is the four main pieces titled ‘Sun’, ‘Moon’, ‘Stars’ and ‘Clouds’ which I collaborated with digital artist/computer scientist, Kush Amerasinghe to interpret common celestial elements using human figures and translucent subject matter (ex.jellyfish). I brought in my ability to capture human subtleties through portraiture and my documentary background in the fields of both photography and video. This combined with the curiosity to explore emerging trends in photo manipulation technologies and creative expression with Kush who is a multidisciplinary expert at Adobe Systems Inc.

This series depicting entities related to the sky explores the need to see through our world both literally in terms of how transparency creates delicate beauty as well as figuratively in terms of our need to understand and imagine the intricacies of who we are.

The ‘Moon’ illustrates the calm, cold and mystic nature of this essential element without which the world as we know it may not come about.   It’s a mix of smooth delicate beauty and rough battered crust of impact craters. PRINT on canvass 40x40 10 limited edition

The ‘Stars’ shows a bright, random and distant emotion reminiscent of a clear night sky.  This balance of sparkling intensity and subdued calmness is entangled in the complexities of what makes the night sky vast. PRINT on canvass 40x4010 limited edition

The ‘Sun’ portrays the warmth, dynamism, life and energy while maintaining the delicate balance of cosmic perfection that keeps us in existence.  The organic rays of aquatic threads represent the glow and brilliance. PRINT on canvass 40x40 10 limited edition

The ‘Clouds’ represents a sense of comfort, and chaos at the same time.  The turmoil underneath with tentacles of rain and thunder is in stark contrast to the calm above experienced by the out of place air plane flying above represented by a flying fish.   PRINT on canvass40x40 10 limited edition

Photographs of aquatic elements were mapped & used to model 3-dimensional ballerinas. From this process 2-dimensional images were created & layered in Photoshop to create 4 separate images (quadtych) depicting the northern lights. The installation was highlighted with a video projecting ballerinas and jelly fish in a synchronized dance movement. A collaboration with Kush Amerasinghe of Adobetv.com (Adobe Systems, Inc).
