Dancing

Light and color have an abstract energy. That process becomes a connector in my universe. Light reveals color. Tiny particles of energy dance, weave and bounce off and thru the subject, creating the form between glass walls of refraction, trapped in the edges, spun into a corner. No place to go. Bouncing back up thru the stillness. Or bouncing back at you from a monitor. Color existing only when light slams into it, shadows hint at another passage.

I see color intensely. When I see a display of colors my mind overloads with excitement. Light bounces off one particle to a myriad of other particles. I’m fascinated with the concept that there is so much happening outside the realm of human vision. Thus the title “Visible Spectrum”. Welcome to my blog. I’ve been […]
