Long ago I started the habit of documenting my artwork with photographs. I originally just took a photo of the finished piece, but then started to record the steps I took to create each piece as a reference for future work. Eventually I
added multiple views from
multiple angles, trying to
capture the essence of the work, as well as the image.
The photographs that I take from unusual angles best reflect my creative process and my vision of the work ... how I see the piece as I work on it, and how I
hope it will be seen by
others. I want the viewer to experience the interaction
of the rhythms in the form, as well as in the spaces in and around the form. If the image in the photograph mirrors the image in my eye, I have
achieved my goal.
