bluemetaldog brochure Presentation Transcript

  • 1. bluemetaldog heidi evans
  • 2. bio Having picked up her first camera before the age of ten, the love of art through a lens has followed Heidi throughout her day to day life. She has sought inspiration wherever she goes. Heidi always marches to the beat of a different drummer – and it shows through her photographs. As a tenured professional in the advertising industry, Heidi has always carried a camera with her, shooting things that created inspiration, or drew her curiosity. This includes, but is not limited to documentary, abstraction and astrophotography. The “Tempo Tenuto” collection created in 2006 was her first serious attempt at fine art photography via her abstract expressionistic imagery. Her collections are photographed digitally, however they are single RAW images with no post-processing layering, or manipulation. Inspired by star trails and the desire to see beyond what is normally visible, they are a down-to-earth dreamscape of our everyday lives.
  • 3. art statement As a Designer in the Advertising industry for over a decade, I am used to manipulating images. However, when I picked up the camera in 2006, with the intent of moving from hobby to profession, I sought to steer 180º from what I was previously doing at work. The images captured within the photograph must be faithful to the original image I shot. Every image in my abstract art has not and will never be tampered with layering, post-manipulation, and colour alteration. Major influences within my previous photographic styles were astrophotography and motion through dance and music. As a photographer and artist, I also felt moved to try something I hadn’t really done in pure pho- tography – abstraction. It allowed me a blank canvas in which to experiment. By combining these influences, controlling the exposure time and dancing with the camera while shooting, I was able to form imagery that was completely new, creating a rhythm and style which is both intriguing and inspirational. Taking from terms I learned while training to become a classically trained percussionist, what emerged from the initial experiments became “Tempo Tenuto” or ‘held time’ – a musical term that instructs the musicians to hold the music for its full value. “Tempo Tenuto” was my first collection of photos named for the musical terms I feel they’ve invoked. The series included “Legato” or smooth, “Staccato” or short and detached and “Tenuto” or held. In utilizing the experience of shooting “Tempo Tenuto”, I continued my work by experimenting with other light sources (fire, neon, and halogen to name a few), honing and refining my vision. As a result, imagery such as landscapes, flowers and cities have all appeared from dancing around light sources. As abstracts, my work allows the viewer to bring his or her own imagination into my art, drawing memory and creativity which generates emotion, creating a bond between my art and the viewer. Like the many textures in a symphony, my photography portrays more than what meets the eye. The lights, taken as a single photograph represent mere seconds in real time – however the complexity, detail, rhythm and flow can never be seen by the naked eye. What results from my work is my photographic interpretation of digital abstract expressionism. Inspired by star trails, music, dance and the desire to see beyond what is normally visible, this is a down-to-earth dreamscape of our everyday lives.
