01 02

lovis is a series of 35mm macro photographs and pencil drawing interpretations. Misusing macro lenses while shooting flowers, mosses and other foliage to create abstracted color field compositions, the imagery captured is then used as reference material for a laborious process of manual “printing” using colored graphite. Each piece represents a phase of a never-ending series of translations from reflected light to print to digital object to bands of approximate color, on and on towards an unknown inevitability. My interest in this process and presentation lies with the examination of what is lost and discovered through manual processes of translation.

lo-vis was exhibited in October 2014 at Weird Shift Storefront in Portland, OR USA, along with web component at lovis.dbamorin.com.
