Click to preview Wisdom Of The Spheres photo book

As in all my work, I was looking for subject matter and qualities of light which when printed would encourage contemplation and ideally lead to numinous experience.
Although the subject in front of the camera was oil and water, these images not only evoke the sensibilities of celestial and biological landscapes, they provide insight into the part-whole relationships and processes that have absorbed classical and contemporary scientists, mathematicians, spiritualists and visionaries.
Their insights, combined with these images provide a lens to help us connect to the big picture and see beneath the surface of everyday living. Together, ideally, they contribute to our appreciation and thirst for meaning.

Of David Smith's vast and significant portfolio of work, the Spheres are amongst my favorites. This collection shows the artist's originality and ability to transport the viewer to another place - a place internal and personal versus external and distant. I so appreciate these photographs!
