Description The dawn springs anew and with it blossom the most extraordinary colors and shapes. Thanks go to the FlamingoRoadNursery in Davie, Florida for granting permission to photograph its beautiful flowers and plants.
Neal Wiseman, Fort Lauderdale Member Since February 2011 Artist Statement My brand of photo-art evolved slowly over the past 44 years. I took my first photography course in 1966, and I continue to train with nationally renowned photographer, James Schot.
My approach is to create layers of imagery using photo-editing techniques and to then merge those layers. When successful, the technique yields an art piece with an ethereal quality, easily recognized by the look of surprise, a gasp, or, perhaps, a look of bewilderment in the eyes of the viewer.
In recent months I have become enamored of floral design. Printed on silk, the images take on a unique texture and sheen. When watercolor effects are added and blended effectively, the work creates a chord of experience: harmony, beauty, and elegance.
Additional details of my background are available in the descriptive portion at my website address. Thanks for visiting.
