Pandemic Shadows

Laurie says:

I started being interested in shadow patterns, when I started taking iPhone photos. I’d done some serious landscape work, but that was a long time ago. But with the pandemic, the isolation and the walking that I’ve been doing, it clarified into something much more emotionally involving.

I’ve started a new series of images that were definitely inspired by sheltering in place and the whole pandemic isolation world.

They are all shadows on paths, some of them sidewalks some of them something more complex.

These are the first group with which I am aesthetically and meaningfully satisfied. Happy or pleased doesn’t apply. But I am fascinated by the way they reflect an aspect of how things are and how they interact together.

I’ll be fascinated to learn, over time, where these paths lead me.

My Sidewalk Photographs: A Fascination

[DISPLAY_ULTIMATE_SOCIAL_ICONS]

Laurie says:

I started looking at sidewalks and their patterns as art sometime this year. The contrast between the geometric forms of the pavement and the organic designs that can overlay them became a kind of beauty to watch for. Most of my art has a complex subject that is reflected in each image. It’s a pleasure to walk through the world and spontaneously come across something that I can make art from.

The pattern in the pavement itself, can be both subtle and beautiful when it’s a part of a larger image.

Except for cropping some of the photos, none of them have been Photo-shopped or manipulated. So there is a reality to these reflections of my vision.
