Stellar Dance (from the series Street Lights) ©2007 Kim Tinuviel www.kimtinuviel.comStellar Dance, 12x12 - SOLD, prints available Eight of my photographs from the series Street Lights are featured this month and next (Mar-Apr, 2013) at Brackenwood Gallery in Langley on Whidbey Island. The exhibit is called Discerning Eyes and is an invitational featuring five Whidbey Island photographers.

My favorite style of photography is currently abstract impressionism. This free-form, improvisatory style puts me "in the zone" with very little effort. Street Lights is representative of this style, but can also be referred to as "Light Paintings", meaning that the compositions are created by direct light, rather than reflected light.

I first began working on Street Lights in 2007 during an obligatory family visit to Las Vegas. As a person who neither gambles or enjoys the other traditional kinds of entertainment this city provides, I was left to find my own diversion. Overstimulated by the noise, crowds and lights, I initially had difficulty creating strong compositions until I began to purposefully break the rules of traditional photography. This alternate approach allowed me to create visual order from the chaos around me.
 
The inspiration for beautiful image-making can be found virtually anywhere, and I have made it a personal challenge to find and make compelling imagery in the least likely settings. Street Lights, like much of my earlier work, utilizes multiple visual dimensions to weave a fabric of light and color. The visual motion creates a kind of poetry that stands on its own, unrelated to the photographic source. Lines become melody and texture is harmony. Color speaks like different voices in the night.
 
Each piece is 12x12 (printed size) and is printed on specialty metallic paper, before being mounted on styrene backing and framed in a matte black floating frame. Unframed 6x6 miniatures are also available. Please visit the exhibit (through the end of April 2013) or contact me for details. Click here to email or call me at 360-639-4299.
