For the past week or so I have been preparing for my first gallery show. I have been working on my Small Town series for the past year trying to come up with something worthy of swanky white gallery walls. Little did I know I would have plenty of photos that I love! I also discovered that I have a pretty distinct style as well and several themes emerged in my work. Not only can I tell stories of places with people and buildings, but with color, texture and pattern. Texture prominently emerged in my photos and it's one of the smaller stories within the series that I will be displaying.
Small old towns are covered in texture. You'll find texture in local art, decaying buildings and building material. Below is a few from the texture part of my series. I hope you enjoy!
Want to see the rest of the photos? Join me at the opening reception on November 15th from 6pm - 8pm at the Gallery at 48 Natoma in Folsom, California.
I'm in pursuit of living a simple, healthy lifestyle by getting back to the basics and creating a lifestyle conducive to my autoimmune disease. I believe food is medicine, gardening feeds the soul and art quiets the mind. Welcome to my creative corner of the internet!
