Artist Statement Abstract Photography Art manipulated into stunning colors and designs.

I love creating art with vibrant colors and unique shapes. Art is my passion. I am living my best life dedicating time to what inspires me. I love gazing at the clouds, defining patterns and photographing. Creating art soothes my soul.

Art has always been in life. I have created many works of art, including a Clay Sculpture of myself. My Artwork won acceptance at the Stockton Unified School District Art Fair three consecutive years and earned Placement Ribbons and a space to be displayed. I am very grateful for this awesome gift from God.

Abstract Photography Art emerged during a shift from figurative subjects in other fields of art in the early 1900s. Modernist artistic movements sought to create optical art that did not refer to objects in the real world, and this desire carried over into photography. Photographers rendered figurative objects unrecognizable by taking a new approach to the medium, cropping and manipulating their compositions. Early abstract photographers banded together into collectives, like the Subjektive Fotografie and the Photo-Secession, to explore the purely visual aspect of medium. These groups experimented with close-ups, cropping, negative printing, and different exposure settings. Later movements, most notably Surrealism, also embraced the medium’s capabilities, further developing unrealistic images through solarization and layering methods. These abstract photographers aimed to establish photography as a field requiring artistic skill and challenged the strictly informative quality of the photograph. Today, photographers are still interested in creating abstract compositions, this time aided by refined camera technology and software programs.
