“A Whistler snow-capped mountain scene with a beautiful, peeling wave in front of it would never exist…
You could never obtain that moment from a real photograph. The dream of it, however, can be very real.”
ART + PHOTOGRAPHY = ARTOGRAPHY
Artography is a unique blend of digitally manipulated photography and design. Photos are captured, edited, and creatively blended together through layers and textures in digital software. Each art-ography piece tells a story through merging the visuals into a cohesive piece.
Each piece of artwork combines between 3 – 10 photographs. Textures are fused, brilliant colors come to life, and worlds are skewed and reinvented to create dreamlike landscapes of mountains, oceans, and forests.
When I began artography27, my main goal was to create personal artwork that would offer a vibrant, interesting, meaningful and “dreamlike” story all within one image. It all began when I had a vision to create a piece of art that combined my passion for the mountains, the ocean and the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. I was also looking for a way to get my “ocean fix” while I’m living in the mountains and not surfing.
I was intrigued by the use of non-traditional printing methods found locally. The use of aluminum and plexiglass face-mounting for printing contributes to the beauty and depth of the finished piece.
Thus, photos are captured, edited, and creatively fused together digitally through layers and textures — and each art-ography piece tells a story through the visuals that are blended together into one cohesive piece of art.
