Textured Text: Letters & Petals

Passion Flower MTt - Old Book


Hibiscus Texted


A range of approaches were taken in creating these textured text compositions.  The individual pieces move from  abstract blend of text and image to  images that emulate the old photo-print processes. I include  two that were  a bit more realistic in colour & detail to provide contrast and to satisfy viewers who prefer a  more naturalistic  style.

  2. Oddly, I really like the first, pinkish one. Pink is one of my least favourite colours so I am surprised. The single white flower in the middle is a work of art. I love it.

      Thanks. somehow as I played with setting & modifications I managed to create a negative silhouette – almost a solargram effect. 😉

  3. I do like the inclusion of text into an image, sometimes it is relevant, sometimes in a bizzare way – not. But it adds another layer of understanding. Tony

      Thanks Tony. The text, as you observe, adds an extra layer of interpretation that has a improvisational abstract quality. Each person will react to it in their own way, either on a conscious or unconscious level. I try to treat the text as a complexional element , allowing any textual meaning to just happen of its own accord.
