Description Can anything be as beautiful as an orchid deeply purple in color? The original was printed on silk and was a big hit at art shows in Fort Lauderdale and Lake Placid. Now it is available in larger format for those interested in a new approach to interior decoration. The serene effect the art piece creates makes it an ideal gift for flower lovers.
Neal Wiseman, Fort Lauderdale Member Since February 2011 Artist Statement My brand of photo-art evolved slowly over the past 44 years. I took my first photography course in 1966, and I continue to train with nationally renowned photographer, James Schot.
My approach is to create layers of imagery using photo-editing techniques and to then merge those layers. When successful, the technique yields an art piece with an ethereal quality, easily recognized by the look of surprise, a gasp, or, perhaps, a look of bewilderment in the eyes of the viewer.
In recent months I have become enamored of floral design. Printed on silk, the images take on a unique texture and sheen. When watercolor effects are added and blended effectively, the work creates a chord of experience: harmony, beauty, and elegance.
