Two New Images: “Shell Study #1″ and “Shell Study #2″

Hello everyone!

I’m working on a light painting tutorial for the next blog post, but in the meantime, I wanted to announce the release of two new images.

Like so many, I’ve always been fascinated by sea shells, and the idea that they are fragile perfect masterpieces, and at the same time potent protectors of their owners.
Their frail structures endure the harshest conditions, yet do so with a level of beautiful rarely seen in nature.

In these images, as in much of my work, I’m intrigued by natural functional patterns and the seemingly accidental way in which they find their way into man-made functional objects.

The prints in the show will be 14″ square, and in 20′ x 24″ frames. They are printed on one of my favorite papers, Museo Max 100% Cotton Rag. They are framed to museum archival standards.

These new pieces will be hanging in the Group Exhibition at Gallery 50 in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The reception is this Saturday July 21st, from 6 – 8 PM. I hope to see you there!
