"Love is the bridge between you and everything."--Rumi
There are so many amazing night-time images of Tokyo's famous "Rainbow Bridge" lit up with glowing colors against the city's brilliant skyline that they made me wonder if I could produce something as appealing in black and white. The challenge was a good one. Working to balance contrasting gradiences was the fun part. The harder (but admittedly also fun) part, was applying a mixture of suggestive minimalism and more definitive form to create something that is both recognizable and maybe a little surrealistic.
In the end, I was intrigued by the contrasts as well as the similarities between this B&W bridge result and my "Savannah Bridge the Morning after Hurricane Matthew" digital photograph. The irony for me is that the exceptional visual effects in the Savannah Bridge image came from the impact of the hurricane on the atmosphere.

After being born and raised in the southeastern United States, I spent many years, while pursuing my education and serving in the U.S. Air Force, traveling around America and the world. Much of that story is told in my recent book releases, Greeting Flannery OConnor at the Back Door of My Mind and Dreams of the Immortal City Savannah. Artwork by me is featured on the cover of both books.
My last 3 public exhibits were at the Savannah/Hilton Head Airport Art Gallery in Savannah, Georgia, USA, and during a cultural arts event in the historic Lafayette Square in the same city. I am currently completing an artbook project on the COVID-19 pandemic with text contributions from writers around the world.
