Symmetrical Wonders

New Digital Gallery added.



Wind tree Symmetry, Inkjet print, 2007

I don't know what it is about adding symmetry that galvanizes an image so. It must have to do with adding order to chaos. In some way adding the reverse mirror version of an image to itself gives a structure to images and tickles our sense of interest. At least it does mine anyway--as evidenced by the amount of symmetrical imagery in the new gallery. In some cases I'll do a double symmetry and flip the image both vertically and horizontally. This generates a kaleidoscopic effect. check out the new images and  and tell me your favorite.
