SEE THROUGH ME
Come Closer Collection
Photos were taken in downtown Chicago and feature the beautiful green spaces and gardens in the city. You’ll also find some shots of “Cloud Gate” (also known as the Bean). The centerpiece of the image is the stairway up to the surface from an underground water taxi stand.
As always, my goal is to create imagery that draws you in and leaves you with a feeling of discovery. In this series I’ve used shapes borrowed from caves and passage ways to show a unique vantage point that allows you to experience one space while peering into another.
THE TITLE COMES FROM “ON THE WAY HOME” BY NEIL YOUNG.
Get to Know the Austin Artist:
The artworks I create are visual journeys that begin with my photography, which is digitally composed into the patterns of my designs. As the photos are layered and manipulated into the drawings; the imagery interacts to create the highlights, shadows, contours, and textures of the artwork and a surreal environment begins to emerge. The more you look, the more you see.
