Click to preview The Artist, Jann T. Bass, At Home In the Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee photo book

In Part One of this book are the author's Photographic Abstract Renderings of Jann Bass and her Appalachian home, Grandee Thiccet.
In PART TWO, there appear 64 copies of slides of Bass's work. The creation dates of the Bass paintings span the 40 plus years of Bass's career as an artist and exhibits the mediums she has used. Those mediums are watercolor, acrylic, pastels and oil. She is still creating.
All of the paintings shown here are currently in private collections around the world. Previous to 2001, she resided in Denver, Colorado and now lives in the Appalachian Mountains of upper east Tennessee.
Photo Abstrac Rendering is what I (the author and photographer) do here in PART ONE and is simply to play with my photographs by manipulating light, color and form. If I were a painter I would say my photographs are my canvasses upon which I paint. It is most times astonishing and delightful to take one image and transform it into something apparently quite different, over and over, searching for THAT moment. The end product has everything to do with the original photograph.
