Nicholas C Christopher

Nicholas C Christopher I started taking pictures in 1970, at the age of 16. My fascination has always been in taking the tool of the Impressionists and early compositional photographers and move the photograph into the realm of ’true art’.

Photography is a fledgling art form whose roots do not go as far back as the Chauvet Caves and whose appreciation, beyond documentary value, can be passingly scrutinized.

Working outdoors with available light I capture the visual juxtaposition of the shadows which play within a compositional ’color’ palette. Dimensionality or lack thereof is a product of this interplay. Dimension and shadow increase during the assembly process taking my 2 dimensional compositions and adding depth. Now light plays a new role... creating a 3 dimensional finished work. The assembly rests on a wall, which is now part of the paradigm.

Many of my pieces are conceived and photographed during my travels. Work is shot in the moment and then set on my digital screen. Nothing is final – the images float until they find their own synchrony. In a sense I capture brush strokes, either still or in motion, which are then arranged into a new visual percept. Light and color for their own sake. Removal of the subjects’ ’real world’ definitions moves the viewer further into their own imagination and visual reference points

A sun-aged Grecian wall in front of a still blue sky becomes a tribute to Georgia O’Keefe. Safety buoys on the Thames River likens one to imagine DNA strands. Images of a sidewalk become an abstraction of light and energy.
