donna maree constructs her images with a profound twist to her subject. Her abstract and conceptual works speak to the viewer with a narrative that encourages their imagination to wonder. Throughout her work she looks for the juxtaposition within the frame. Her reality and fantasy are a fusion of organic and structural forms that take on the notions of the "other worldly'. Her work is aesthetically pleasing but more importantly they transcend a visual discourse. Ultimately she wants her work to be emotive and thought-provoking.
Abstract photography takes us out of our comfort zone, warps our perception, and invites us into another realm. Abstract images do not represent reality, although abstraction occurs when an artist captures fragments of a natural scene or artefact. The artist then isolates certain frames of reference in order to create a composition that bears little or no resemblance to the original object photographed. The results are works of art that have amazing aesthetic qualities.
Conceptual photography takes us on a journey surrounded by ideas and meanings. Conceptual images are a result of using photography to illustrate ideas, symbols, and themes. It is all about ideas and meanings rather than the physical works of art. This type of photography has been used for impact in campaigns creating an awareness of certain topics and events. Powerful messages permeate around profound concepts placing the idea as a hierarchy to the art work itself.
