Article 05 -
ENERGY TO THE CANVAS
We view the world through our own personal lens:
Our eyes, our camera, our perspective.
This project is about comparative vision.
Architecture as seen by a photographer with the camera.
Architecture as seen by a painter with paint on paper.
It’s hard work to see.
What we think we recognize at first may not be what we come to know after time.
To breathe deep and stay still with one frame.
To look hard at the shapes and forms and lines and colors that make up the picture.
Its hard work to communicate.
To translate what is in our minds eye.
To find what stirs in our soul and convey that to another person.
I relished this moment.
To take the time to immerse myself in the act of seeing.
To have the ability to express what I observe through my hands.
And to have an experience that showed me that making art is nothing more than seeing with your soul.
