While visiting Portland, Oregon in the summer of 2011 I became consciously aware of the incredibly beautiful abstract patterns reflected in the windows of the Downtown. As I began to photograph these images I found myself composing what appeared to be paintings. My initial awareness turned into an excitement and a passion for exploring more opportunities to capture this abstract art. I started to associate to the way metal and glass, like structure and openness, represent the tension between elements in modern architecture. Although the metal framework demands conformity, the glass reflections seem to explode almost in defiance of this structure and, in the end, seem to transcend their captors.

 

We can try to look directly at the world but reality, without intention, is inevitably distorted through the lens of our personal histories. It is like light on a window, deforming the objects it is reflecting. While never absolutely real, there are elements of reality most of us could agree on and that is why fragments of objects (a fluorescent light shining in a window, a car parked on a rooftop garage, or a rivet driven into steel) remain in these images as illustrations of how we see what's in front of us.

 

The City Reflections Project, through its imagery of colors, shapes and textures, represents the way we place discordant pieces of our lives in proximity to each other, deconstruct the whole of an experience, embellish, elaborate and abstract the simple, plain and ordinary truth that is life.


The City Reflections Project will run throughout the month of December. All work for sale throught the artist at abstone2@comcast.net


Artist ( Description ): 

 

Andrea Stone had been primarily a landscape photographer until three and a half years ago when she had an “epiphany of sight” while visiting Portland, Oregon.  Seven cities later, her “City Reflections Project” has been recognized internationally.

Images from this series were selected for exhibit at the 2012 Modesto International Architecture Festival.  Andrea has been published in three internationally acclaimed online photography magazines including LensWork Extended #106, Lenscratch (featured photographer, December 15, 2013), and on the cover page of LensCulture.  She earned a Grand Prix Juror of Merit Award for Rooftop Dream in the International Fine Art Competition in Paris in November 2013.

In 2014 Andrea’s City Reflections series garnered more recognition with feature articles in Lab-Zine 8, La boite verte (France), Fubiz (France), Plataforma Urbana (Chile), ArchDaily  (Mexico, Brazil), and Cosas de Arquitectos (Spain) among others.  This past August she was interviewed and published in the printed South Korean magazine Photo+. At the end of the year she will be featured in the arts and architecture quarterly printed magazine A + E (Morocco).

During the summer of 2014 Andrea’s work was exhibited in a group show at the prestigious Panopticon fine art photography gallery in Boston, MA. In August, she licensed six of her images to the Lumas gallery in Berlin to sell and display her work throughout their 30 European galleries.

Andrea’s work can be found on the Stone Photography website ( arstonephotography.com) and at the Stone Photography Studio, both of which she shares with her husband Rob Stone. Her award-winning images have been selected for multiple juried shows in Northern California, including Viewpoint Photographic Art Center, The Blue Line Gallery and Gallery 1855 (solo show, December 2014).  Andrea is represented by Lumas (Berlin, DE), Art Consulting Services (Sacramento, CA), DSA Fine Arts (Beacon, NY), Kinzelman Art Consulting (Houston, TX), and DAC Art Consulting (Atlanta, GA).
