Windy Palms

Windy Palms

Artwork Description

WINDY PALMS are images of palm trees taken while swirling my camera around in a circle. I often lie under palm trees by the beach and looking up it appears like the palms are whirling in circles on windy days.  Over fifty photographs of the palm branches were recorded before I was satisfied with the composition for the triptych. The photos were made into transparencies and adhered to an aluminum plate which I burnished and sanded to follow the shapes of the branch’s movements so the texture of the plate would show though the film like transparency. The artwork portrays movement and is a record of my playful imagination.
