MtoN

MtoN is an abstract photographic series about space, color, and where perception confronts a reality.  Photography on its own rides the line between reality and what the “other” of reality is. Defining what the reality is in the photograph may be the difference between the line in M and N, and how much the meaning changes.  Similarly I find this line through Modern Artist like Lucio Fontana, Ellsworth Kelly, and Josef Albers who used simple abstraction compositions and interactions of colors.
