The title for this series is Psychedelic Ecdysis. Psychedelic representing the surreal colors I chose to hand paint my images. And Ecdysis representing my rebirth. I was inspired by the muted colors I was surrounded by when I was living in the desert. Craving for vibrancy not found in my surroundings, I added my own imagined colors to my analog photo prints. This was a very significant time in my life of personal growth and a new found appreciation for vivid expressionism, much like fauvism art.
Photos were mostly taken in Antelope Valley, CA and around Los Angeles.
