Visitors to Eastep Photography gallery opening January 27, 2018

My fellow artists; Lucy Barber, Brandy Eiger, Kathy Wright and I welcomed visitors and buyers to a successful “Open Studio’s” Saturday January 27, 2018.   We appreciate the many visitors to our studios and thank those who supported our creative work with purchases.

Work is underway for our next Open Studio’s February 24, 2018 10am to 4pm.  We will be showing new photography, paintings, and multi-media art.   Visitors shared with us how much they enjoyed seeing the space where we work and being able to talk with us about our creative process.  We get so much from these interactions and look forward to welcoming you to our next opening.  –Wayne Eastep

I love the feeling of this image.  It is as if I am small and moving among the tulips looking up at the sun coming down through the petals and leaves.

“Flower Essence”

There is universality in the appeal of flowers.

Every corner deli in New York City has flowers for sale. Dubai Flower Centre has a hanger dedicated to importing and exporting flowers from around the world. City and suburban grocery stores sell flowers. Along the city streets in Kazakhstan, roadside stands offer flower bouquets for house gifts.

Flowers at a New York  City Deli

When looking at a flower I view the flower with my mind’s eye, not just my eyes. Focusing on the complexity of design and color nuance of each flower enhances my sense of observation. Using the ocular of the camera’s lens, I explore and express what my mind’s eye is seeing. When I focus on a flower, this visual connection is transformed into an emotional one. I see beauty. I sense grace. I am moved by the marvel of design within the flower.

This experience  represents  a first principle of existence for me: transference of energy or spirit.  It is the bond between the human spirit and the spirit within nature. When that momentary connection is made, the rejuvenating power of nature is activated. Perhaps this is why flowers have a universal appeal.

We all see or feel something unique in art, even when looking at the same object. When I look at the images of flowers in this collection, I see many different things: beauty, complexity, grace, design, sensuality and delicacy.

I would love to read what you see, sense, and feel in response to looking at the flowers in this collection:  “Flower Essence” at WayneEastep.com.

Seeing with my Mind’s Eye

When I look at a flower I realize I view the flower with my mind’s eye not just my eyes.
