Artist's Opening Reception:
Friday, April 10
5:00 - 7:00
Exhibition Dates: April 10 - July 3, 2015
Since the invention of the camera, there are few subjects that attract photographers more than the landscape. Whether photographing from the sky or lying on the grass, photographers continually seek to understand and explore the ground upon which we live and walk. While it seems almost impossible to capture nature in a unique way, Ysabel LeMay defies all odds, creating spectacular images that radiate with color, density and awe.
LeMay found her way to art photography after a successful career as a graphic artist. With an eye for design and the patience to allow her images to evolve, LeMay draws on many shots to complete a single vista. LeMay takes pictures of birds, insects, flowers, trees and other elements of the natural world then recomposes the image-fragments digitally. The frames she creates are dazzling expanses of lush flora and fauna so idyllic they seem to be from a dream.
