I like the slight melancholy mystery of these images. In general, the softened color palette and contrast evokes a faded memory, but the primary forms have a bold function.
`Evolution´ employs a primordial form, spiraling up out of the water like a mythic sea creature. I also see the faintly grainy quality and washed out magenta tonality as harkening back to old photographic documentary film, though I´m unsure of the media/process actually employed here. I find the vertical orientation is also unexpected for the surreal landscape, as the weighty spiral form doesn´t appear able to sustain its upward thrust for long, as it curls into itself.
The piece entitled `Liz´ is an enticing picture as well; some more direct photographic reference to lizards is evident, but there is also a diffused manipulation of the image that muffles direct or overt pictorial representation. The resulting image calls to mind pictographic symbolism from a host of ethnic traditions and artistic eras. In this way, `Liz´ reminds me of a mellowed Florence Putterman painting. So the piece seems less about the natural subject depicted, and more about the state of flux, or evanescent movement. http://artists2artists.net/photo/liz

Contemporary Artist Use Social Media for Global Branding
In a world where the majority of the world´s population is using social media websites like Facebook and Twitter to stay connected with audiences, artists who traditionally avoid the usage of technology in their careers are using the internet for self promotion and networking. While Google Adwords Keyword Tool and Alexa do not depict artists in mass numbers searching for arts-related keyword over the internet, the platforms do indicate that there is a rise in the number of artists who are using internet technologies, and social media websites in particular.
