(photography + textiles)
As an artist, I am always tying to find new ways to evolve and display work. Photography no longer needs to be a frame on a wall. In fact, it no longer needs to look like pictures at all. In my latest series, I have developed my own techniques in Adobe Photoshop in order to transform ordinary photographs into complex patterns, designs, and tessellations.
Since pattern lends itself so well to textiles, I am printing them on fabric rather than paper. I hope that this work will broaden the spectrum of photography into the world of textiles. I even began sewing with some of my fabrics… The featured image below is a photograph under a bridge in Charleston, SC that has been manipulated into an abstract symmetric tapestry.
