January Exhibition – Jim Reynolds - Artist Statement

Jim takes great interest in conveying unexpected perspectives through photographic images to pleasure and sometimes puzzle the eye and mind.

His photographs try to capture transitory relationships between real objects and their contexts. When striking paradoxes or juxtapositions present themselves, he looks for ways to combine them in the larger image.

His compositions often seek to create tension between deep space and the patterns formed on the picture plane, contrast between light and shadow, and saturated color to intensify their impact.

The bottom line for Jim is to elicit visual pleasure by capturing the viewer’s imagination for a moment and causing him/her to linger on the image before moving on.
