About the Book
Abstract Impressionism was first seen in New York in 1946. It expresses the artist's emotion and focus on inner energy, and sometimes contemplation, creating expressive, lyrical and thoughtful qualities. In this book I explore Abstract Impressionism through a mixture of photography, image editing apps and composite techniques. A composite photograph uses two or more separate images which have been superimposed to create a more abstract effect. Superimposing one or more photographs on top of each other is as old as photography itself, the difference now is the absolute control that working digitally affords, so it is now an elegant process.
I have worked and taught as a professional artist/photographer for over 30 years. I have held many exhibitions in galleries around the UK and my current exhibition can be seen on Saachiart. Throughout my career I have undertaken numerous art projects with museums, private and national collections including Chatsworth and The Royal Institute of British Architects and have been widely published. I was also on the board of the Site Gallery in Sheffield for four years.
