On Our Walls: JMR Photography
Photographs by Jamie Richey are displayed on our artist wall for the month of August!
From film and writing to painting and crafting to nature and meditation, my many and varied interests all have a voice in my portfolio. The work I curated for this show is some of my favorite and exhibits a couple of popular themes that surface regularly:
– I love to play around with text and how it can inform an image or guide a viewer toward a particular or alternative way of interpretation.
– I enjoy constructing a piece by using a variety of processes, whether it’s in the darkroom, incorporating alternative print-making techniques, or in the studio, where I have anything from glue guns and thread to paint and magazine clippings at my fingertips!
– The theme of mindfulness or stillness is seen both in the images that present a question and in my nature photography. Being an artist gives me the opportunity to slow down, look, and re-discover. I press pause with the camera shutter and capture those often overlooked details and fleeting thoughts to share with others.
I hope these images encourage you to take a moment – a longer gaze, get lost in thought and see where it takes you…
