Featured Artist::: Barry Underwood

Hello All!

Today's artist Barry Underwood is new to me and I'm so glad I found him. His work poetic, fanciful and completely sublime. Here's Barry's statement about his work {taken from his portfolio site}:::

"These images are documentations of full-scale installations that are built on-site in the landscape. Using illusion, imagination, and narrative, my photographs explore the potential of the ordinary. I approach my photographic work with a theatrical sensibility, much like a cinematographer or set designer would. By reading the landscape and altering the vista through lights and photographic effects, I transform everyday scenes into unique images. Light and color alter the perception of space, while defamiliarizing common objects. Space collapses, while the lights that I install appear as intrusions and interventions. This combination renders the forms in the landscape abstract. Inspired by cinema, land art, and contemporary painting, the resulting photographs are both surreal and familiar. They suggest a larger narrative, and yet that narrative remains elusive and mystifying."

Well I'm thoroughly mystified! I think I'd feel as though I walked into a dream if I came across one of his pieces. A strange and beautiful dream. How about you?
