Lloyd Weller & Ellen Felsenthal
November 4-December 6
My work often celebrates the freedom to express by combining related and unrelated concepts, subjects, and spaces into new, often ambiguous entities. Seemingly “normal”, I relish in the idea of the subtle discovery of surprise. It is the interior landscape of the mind, the discovery of the enhanced character, unavailable to the naked eye, that I seek. The artists I admire, and who have influenced my thinking and my work, are the painters who freely altered their colors, their spaces, and their relationships to discover what really mattered to them, the interior landscape of their own mind.
Photography is one way to share my deep reverence for the natural world, particularly the animals who share my life and define my experience. These individuals are not only my subjects; they are my inspiration. As a traditional “shooter,” I create images with minimal computer enhancement, relying instead on elements found in nature to give my images their structure. I am drawn to detail – the small fragments of color, texture and pattern that make up my personal landscape.
