Star Core I & II by Studio Shangri-La
Conceptual abstract photography on the expression of light / photons, for me a form of reverence. This is duo is also formed from light reflections on metal. The abstraction imagines thermonuclear fusion, awesome cosmic power, and imagining stars as vast data transmission centers, since light carries information. I’m also inspired by my ongoing studies bothContinue reading “Star Core I & II by Studio Shangri-La”

New In April/May: The Corsham Black & Whites + The Locks
I had a wonderful recording trip to Real World Studios in Box, Corsham recently and there was also excellent opportunity for photography.

ThisContinue reading “New In April/May: The Corsham Black & Whites + The Locks”

Nature’s Abstraction • Studio Shangri-La Fine Art Photography
Today’s theme is abstraction in nature, and abstract ideas and forms being birthed from nature. DISPERSION is marbleized pollen in water. This effect can be achieved with paint, yet nature is the original artist.
Studio Shangri-La Fine Art Photography: Autograph Tree / Clusea rosea
This large format horizontal piece makes use of both symmetry and asymmetry, like nature. And every plant and piece of nature has a function in the grand design, whether we’re immediately aware of it or not. The path of knowledge by respectful exploration will continue to reveal that.
Studio Shangri-La Art Of The Day: Bleeding Heart Vine
This Art Of The Day is another modern tropical botanical with an Art Deco-inspired layout. Bleeding Heart Vine, like so many other plants, has medicinal qualities, most notably pain relief, a numbing effect. ￼ As seen here, the Vine is climbing a cabana wall in South Beach. It’s native to West Africa, though. These botanicalsContinue reading “Studio Shangri-La Art Of The Day: Bleeding Heart Vine”

Featured Artwork + Concept: “Decision Tree”
With “Decision Tree” I was inspired by the evolutionary choices of species that leads to different adaptations. The overlapping Cubist style layout in both is an abstraction of overlapping decision trees, expressive of possible paths of one or more species or situations. These are photos I took of actual trees, so in that way thereContinue reading “Featured Artwork + Concept: “Decision Tree””
