MARSH & FOREST VERTICALS
The Linear Abstracts are an extension of the Landscape Abstract series with a focus on color, line, and movement. As is characteristic of John’s creative vision, the details within the photograph vanish and blur, simplifying the image to accentuate pureness of color and form. In this body of work, movement transitions to vertical as opposed to horizontal.
The photographs are shown in their original state as taken and are not digitally manipulated in post. Using a proprietary proofing process to achieve the most accurate colors possible, John prints straight to canvas utilizing a state-of-the-art digital darkroom with a wide-format printer and archival inks. Once printed, canvases are given a protective UV coating, stretched over custom-designed stretcher bars, and framed with handmade, locally built wood floater frames, made to order in dark walnut or painted black.
