Thomas Hewitt: Controlled Kollisions
“My work, while exploring the geometric relationships of common items in our environment, provides a glimpse of an altered reality. A photo of a water lily, although pleasant, has been seen so often that it is merely a common icon. The same exquisite water lily, naturally precise, becomes a radiant mandala with great depth and multiple focal points of symmetry when kaleidoscopically transformed.
A kaleidoscopic transformation is unique. To create it, a photograph is digitally manipulated. I use obsolete software which is heavily reliant on math, yet provides control over results. There are infinite combinations of variables which can be applied to the same photograph in a succession of layers. Making one’s way through so many choices is both exhilarating and dizzying”
