Watercolors: The Currents of Life
There are 7 billion of us living on a planet that consists mainly of water. Like our planet we are all influenced by the currents that weave through our world.
Currents can skim the surface being almost imperceptible, while other times the influence can be monumentally felt at our very depths. And depending on our vantage point one may see bliss while another sees turmoil.
Watercolors: The Currents of Life is my interpretation of these currents and their influences. The works are numbered to preserve their purity and the neutrality for each viewer. Please take a moment to interpret each piece.
About Photographer Philip Short
Philip Short is a primarily self-taught, constantly learning photographic artist. Photography is one of several creative outlets for him. Philip pursues it not to make a living, but to make living enjoyable. Being a photographer was one of his childhood dreams, and he was fortunate enough to have loving parents who gave him the freedom and encouragement to explore the world and how he wanted to make his place in it.
Philip’s choice of medium originates from his exposure to the brilliance of Ansel Adams. He was awe struck by almost every piece that he saw. Philip loves how Ansel Adams took subjects often seen and photographed by many and presented them in new perspectives. His photographs had the ability to leave thought and or life changing impressions on those who saw his work.
That impression has led Philip Short to want to pick up his camera and share his artistic visions. Philip Short’s goal as an artist is to live outside the box and continually look for opportunities to push his talents and his visions to their maximum potential. Philip sees being an artist not only as an opportunity to share your vision with those around you, but also with those who exist in a different space and time. “If I inspire, motivate, and captivate someone, especially someone who doesn’t know me…then my photographic career is a success!”
