Artist Statement

 

Oranges was an exploration in form, composition and color, to evoke a mood. Composition is such an important element in a successful image, and the still life is an excellent way to test one's skills. In terms of subject matter and color choice, I was inspired by my response to Art Deco architecture in California (sadly only via books and the internet). I wanted to capture the intensity of a crystal clear, blue sky cushioned with the curves of contrasting yellow and orange deco buildings. I love the accents of colored strips on deco buildings, and that's what motivated the red berries. For the lighting, I wanted something that provided contrast and long shadows to give the impression that the sun is setting after a long, hot day. I then gave it a vignette and a "painterly" filter and removed all the reflections so it gave the impression that it could be a painting.
