Lilly Fresco

It was inevitable my love of surface texture (especially crumbling Italian walls and frescoes) and photography would result in combining straight photographs with those of textured surfaces. For about ten years I’d been creating digital collage-like artwork incorporating elements such as flaking paint, rusted metal, graffiti and multilayered paint-washed walls.


Here then is a macro shot of a lilly I took using the Pany G1 combined with a textured wall image from Firenze taken on my last visit to Italy.


The contemporary abstraction and sensibility of the lilly image merges with an ancient, rather painterly wall texture, giving it a luminous and fresco-like quality. Additional textured macro images are posted on my Recent Work page.
