Doug Lawler : Ascent at Night (Print)
16 x 20" with matting
The ongoing theme of my current work is light and color. I’m exploring light as the driving force in our understating of the universe and the laws of physics. Complex color is the total effect of the environmental influences on the objects we perceive. The color we see is really a combination of surfaces, reflections, and shadows. Light emerges from objects, light also penetrates objects. Color then becomes the essence of things, rather than the description of things. I try to capture an image where color and light combine to form a moment of grace.
