“Eos” – by Dessa Kirk

This image is made from a photo I took of this artwork in downtown Columbus, IN. The artist above has sculpted many of these types of works and a similar piece resides in Grant Park in Chicago.

This is my own take on it, with her sculpture composited onto some of my other photos. I like to showcase other types of art with my photographs. Sculpture, paintings, architecture and street art are all some of my favorite subjects.

I do this with the understanding that the result is not “mine” at all, but more of a depiction of whatever that piece of art or architecture might have made me feel like. Of course, all with my own spin on it.

Trumpet To Summer

“I am following Nature without being able to grasp her… I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.”

-Claude Monet

 

I cannot hike through the woods with my camera without occasionally stopping to capture some flowers. They draw me in like a bee and often I come home with photos of nothing but flowers.
