RICHARD GULEZIAN - Artist’s Statement
I am a fine art photographer. I live in Manchester, New Hampshire, with my wife, Sue, our Yorkie, Jayce, and our two Maltese, Oliver and Lilly.
This series is about my florals.
I studied fine art black and white photography at the New England School of Photography using large format cameras. I also became interested in abstract photographic imagery. With the flower photographs, I feel I have combined my abstract vision with color.
I retired from civil service one year ago, at which time my full time focus evolved in to the florals you see here today. The flower photographs had a simple beginning. I started with a photograph of a flower in a vase on a window sill, capturing the light’s reflection on the flower. That evolved in to creating a close up photograph of a petal that is complimented by a strong shadow. I was then struck by how black and white florals could appear to dance and flow as in a ballet.
I became more and more drawn to the shape, form, and pattern of each flower. I am attracted to the simple flow of the line of a single petal. By isolating the subject from its primary surrounding, I can find in it beauty, humor, pathos, and more.
I am keenly aware of the life span of a single bloom. I know that I only have a small window of time to work with it. However, I can see the beauty before it blooms and the beauty when it is past bloom. I capture the flower as I see it, as it speaks to me.
I hope that you will enjoy my floral portrait series as much as I enjoyed creating them. I take your focus to the inside of a tulip, the simple elegance of the calla lily, the pre –bloom cluster of the amaryllis, the stark beauty of the purple iris, the perfection of a single white rose, the richness of a single gold leaf, among others.
