I see two aliens merging as one but separate in their own universes. The first alien is on the left and he is cold and stern. He sees what he sees and there is nothing flexible in what he is observing. The universe is his and nothing else really matters. The second alien is on the right and this one is full of compromise and peace. She understands that there are others in this existence but she is willing to work with this. There is peace and light and many colors in her vision and yet she is ever vigilant to the possibility of another version of her out there that might be different. These two will not have to reconcile sharing the same space as long as the alien on the left remains unaware that they have to share.
This picture started out as a picture of handblown glass created by Garth Mudge of Glassworks. Glassworks is located downtown Winthrop Wa (Washington State), in the beautiful Methow Valley. The Methow is a small jewel of an area not too far from Seattle in the Pacific Northwest. Okanogan County is such a great place to live for all of the sunshine and outdoors recreation. It was taken with a Macro lens and is a very small section of the overall object. I am exploring hand blown glass at a macro level in the hopes of creating fine art from very small pieces of glass.
All of the colors and shapes are created from hot glass. None of these images are created from anything other than hand blown glass objects. I am removing visible specks of dust in Photoshop to present a cleaner look but the overall image is exactly what I am seeing through my camera lens.
The colors are vivid and alive due to the way that I am illuminating the glass art as I am taking the picture. In a way I am photographing the light as it passes through the object. Creating art from light or art from glass art? Either way I see creating art from life and from existing art.
I have been a professional photographer for many years but it is only recently that I have been photographing glass at any level. It is such an exciting experience to discover these images. I almost feel like an archeologist as I explore a small hidden word and reveal the treasures within. ----------------------
