Over the last year or so I’ve been working on diptychs – playing with a combination of opposites and similarities.
I initially called them Natural, Unnatural, the majority being macros of tree bark (natural) combined with eroded urban objects (unnatural). The first two images are an example of this.
Organic, Man-made: Abstract diptych of tree bark with fungi combined with a fountain surround under renovation; also a dark fissure in light tree bark combines with a light ‘fissure’ in a dark background.
At some point I brought in rocks although never explored this much, still I thought I’d add them here since rocks are also natural…
Summer/winter at the duck pond.
The same twisted tree looking at it from the pond in the late summer; then looking at it from the other side, covered in snow 5 months later. The similarities result from using Photoshop’s ‘Cut-out’ filter on both, and the few yellow leaves that didn’t fall off.
