Artwork Description

Photograph on paper

Signed with a certificate of authenticity.

Kata 1
As part of the Kata series, this is a single frame, long exposure photograph.

The techniques and ideas have been around for over 100 years. In very simple terms, it is moving some sort of light source to ‘draw’ or paint within the frame of a single long exposure photograph.

With this particular field of photography, I believe that explaining the “how” with technical details detracts from the work, I’d rather you enjoyed the art. So the above, is how i’ll leave it. There are loads of places in the internet to find out the mechanics if you are interested.

I like the idea of the mystery of creation.

Created in my home studio, love the contrast here. my vision for this is one of a set of long landscapes, maybe in an office or workspace - this is the first of the Kata series.

Kata is described as being a series of choreographed movements within Japanese martial arts. Not to belittle these physical art forms, i have often described the way of creating these light paintings as 'dancing around int he dark like a ninja in my black clothes!'

I would recommend a frameless frame (contact me if you would like to discuss framing in more detail ). I offer this unframed to allow for personal preference and and style. Personally again, i've chosen this size, i think the subject and medium lends itself to being on the larger size. As a photograph, i have flexibility with sizing, so please get in touch if you have other ideas.

If this isn't quite what you are looking for but you like the style, please do get in touch, commissions are more than welcome, lets work together.
