On the Wall Series, Berlin and Hamburg

The first thing you notice about Germany’s two largest cities, Hamburg and Berlin, is the enormous amount of graffiti. But looking closer you realize the advertising of the alternate communities is intermingled with the graffiti and the graffiti itself was heavily influence by the international art world. On the walls you see the influences from Richard Hambleton, Blek le Rat, Jean-Michel Basquiat (SAMO), Walter Josef Fischer (Oz), Oliver Bienkowski, Blu, Mark Jenkins, Ronald English, Caledonia Dance Currie (Swoon), etc. The walls are a museum of the history of graffiti art.

The words that are intermingled with the images often conveyed political statements sometimes several stories high. The graffiti is also still found on the remaining sections of the Berlin wall where much of the graffiti began, as individuals defying its harsh reality, painted art onto its surface. This new series is primarily an abstract exploration of what I found on these walls.

Planet Stresses

Planet Stresses

Planet Stresses is one piece from a series called Further Abstraction. It is a series of digital photographs that explore functional objects in the process of being hand modified and reengineered or manmade objects in the process of transition.

If you are interested in the whole series a book is available from the Sassamatt Blurb Bookstore, http://www.blurb.com/b/3568008-poetic-abstractions .

January Fog: Deep Cove Fishing

In among the cedars and fir trees, the stillness is disturbed only by the casting of a line. This is the understated entrance to a long Sound whose mountains run vertically up out of the water, at points, and then climb in a tangle of rain forest. Here the scene is more subdued with the grandeur hidden from view in the January fog.
