Charlotte Beach, NY

Photography; Inkjet, 2003

Each image, which is deliberately selected by the photographer, whether it is from an urban scene or a natural terrain, is divided into grids of equal size. The colors rendered in each grid are averaged and reduced into a monochrome. Alleviated of their descriptive role within representational view, the elemental properties of form and color are distilled into a new landscape that can be seen as residing unrevealed in the original photograph. The effect is a liberation of form and color from narrative, without eliminating, in total, its primary relationship to photographic representations of the external world.
