James Stasiak

Photographic Artist/Musician
New Milford, Connecticut, USA
My work is focused on documenting images of natural and constructed design, color and composition which present multiple interpretations of perception for the viewer. I use some of these images to create tessellated and mandala-like images on a meditative plane. The simple mathematical constructs of rotation and reflection vary with each piece, and within each series, enabling me to communicate my imagination and perception to the viewer and have them exercise their own interpretation. Because the original images are photographs of reality, I believe that the the depth and extent of these perceptions is limitless.

This image was created in a meditative process from an original photograph which had an interesting combination of design and color. In processing and constructing this image, mathematically-based combinative interactions of color, luminosity and rotation enabled the final image to develop. This is a unique construction because my original photograph was modified in a series of steps controlled by my direction.
