An Exhibition of Photography by David Lord
May 12 – June 25
In an era that seems to be dominated by computers, my work is proof that expensive camera equipment and computer editing are still not necessary to create original, one-of-a-kind photographic works of art.
This exhibition is brought to you by the Art Center’s exhibition committee. David Lord has a BFA in Fine Arts from Colorado Mesa University. His work can be described as contemporary, impressionist, abstract photography.
The impressionists were primarily focused on color and lighting conditions to capture a specific moment in time. In a similar way, Lord replicates this experience through the medium of photography, capturing the prismatic effect accompanied by the use of light, water, and ice. Many of the photographs appear like constellations or nebulas, floating in the void of space. These organic compositions and colors merge together to form a dazzling mosaic emblematic of the life-creating forces of the universe.
“As an artist, I enjoy experimenting with light and studying how it is reflected, blended, shaded, and how it changes with different surfaces and angles. My most exciting experiences as an artist are the times that I use my understanding of light to play with it and use it as a medium to produce effects that appear to push the boundaries of reality.
“In an era that seems to be dominated by computers, my work is proof that expensive camera equipment and computer editing are still not necessary to create original, one-of-a-kind photographic works of art. Using only primary colors, through time and refraction, these unique and technically complex images are created in real-time with older camera equipment and absolutely no Photoshop or digital enhancement. By knowing how to manipulate my camera equipment and the use of creative lighting effects, I am able to create colorful images of fantasy that stir the imagination.”
