PERMUTATIONS

 

"Permutations” comprises a series of prints derived from photographs of landscape features which, unremarkable at first glance, reveal unexpected tonal and chromatic possibilities when transformed by repeated layering and blending of modifications of the source image. Features emerge and subside; surfaces solidify and dissolve; palette intensifies and subdues; tone and mood range widely. The chromatic ‘DNA’ of each image generates a kaleidoscope of  ‘states'.

The digital files are derived from scanned negatives or direct digital captures, and the pigment inkjet prints are of two sizes: approximately 13.5 x 20 inches on a 17 x 22 inch sheet and 20 x 26.75 inches on a 24 x 30 inch sheet.
