Photo Spiva - Part One

Reformed Hosta Variegae

In 2007, I was fortunate enough to have two of my images selected by artist/juror John Paul Caponigro, for the annual photoSpiva exhibition at the George A. Spiva Center for the Arts.
     I had been experimenting with the concept of multiple images, abstracted and reformed, within the same composition. In Reformed Hosta Variegae, I already liked the sinewy line created along the edge of the hosta leaf and wondered what the potential was for defining a new shape. The resulting composition was reminiscent of a multi-petalled, sensuous Georgia O'Keefe floral painting.
     Next week I'll present another reformed image that takes on a similar but distinctly different composition.
