Potpourri: Photos by Doug Fogelson





Potpourri: Photos by Doug Fogelson

Photos of flowers using multiple exposure photograms and other hand touching techniques.
My main objective in Potpourri is twofold: the first impulse is to create an installation where the viewer feels an immediate and seductive sensory experience of light, color, and form stemming directly from the actual flower material; the second is to stimulate a deeper consideration of the floral signifier and its related industrial/conceptual/spiritual meaning for the current times. References to Flemish Baroque floral painting, Abstract Expressionism, and the general history of floral depictions in art are implicit in the various presentations of this work.
