Water Brother dedicated to my brother Stuart, who died in 2001. These images are part of an ongoing series of landscapes and waterscapes captured on and near lakes, rivers and oceans. Combined images from Paraguay, Aruba, Argentina, Brazil, Japan, Cuba, USA and all over Canada. I’ve learned to rearrange my longing for my departed brother, by celebrating his existence through epic imagery. I now see him in all forms of waters’ change. He is part of the cycle, a body gone back to the molecular beginnings we all come from. He is a shape shifter and these are my visual meditations. The images presented here are made up of multiple layers and combinations of captures, sculpted together to create a larger story.
Each detailed nuance and gesture of cloud and waters’ surface is a character. They are carefully painted into a choreographed, waterscape dance. When all images are hung in a strategic row, they align into their own wave pattern.
Kerry Shaw is a photo-based visual artist from Canada, currently living in Southern California. With a conceptual approach, she absorbs remembrance into her daily practice with a focus on detailed and colorful aesthetics. Her work explores the ever-evolving, consequential, perpetual flow of nature and the elaborately beautiful. Her background in modern dance and traditional painting is evident in a highly choreographic approach to complicated elements. A ‘digital knitting’ process of designing seamless illustrations are made up of often hundreds of images and layers, painted into an effortless composition.
