DoN‘s digital photograph, Sky Holes, is included in the juried photography exhibition held annually at The Philadelphia Sketch Club. The abstract landscape image of sunlight shining through trees onto an urban surface has a vibrating tension of shape and color. The black door on the left is very dark n the shady part and reads as black but the sunlit parts match the tones of the shadow part of the white door on the right.
The title Sky Holes refers to the shapes and special tones painters use to create the illusion of sun shining through gaps in trees. The colors of the holes are different that the color of the sky because the light refracts through the leaves changing the hue that the eye detects. In Sky Holes the shadows take on a 3D effect and the light is softened and refocused through the gaps in the trees. The door handle and glimpse of sidewalk grounds the image in reality while the amorphous pseudopodia of the sky holes flip to abstract shapes.
Sky Holes has been exhibited in Art Ability International Juried Art Exhibition at Bryn Mawr Rehab Center, Creative Powers: Selections from Art Ability at Delaware Art Museum, Photographic Society of Philadelphia group show, Shannondell at Valley Forge and now PHOTOgraphy 2013 at The Philadelphia Sketch Club.
