Marie Bush

Artist's Statement: Photography is a medium to communicate my love of Nature. Vibrant colors, luscious textures and alluring patterns kindle my passion. This leads me into a world of exploration where the discovery process transports me so completely I lose myself in the joys of dream-like moments. Abstract compositions reflect the hidden beauty in the color and design of smaller subjects. My camera's quarry can appear elusive, especially with water movement, reflection and unusual camera angles that enrich the composition. My photographs invite viewers to linger, to reflect, to slow down and to open their senses. They are an invitation to look again and to look more deeply, to find what may still be hidden. Each is an opportunity for contemplation and reverie.
