Kaleidosmoke

As a kid, I always loved the psychedelic art that was so popular with the counter-culture of the late 1960′s and early 1970′s.   Although I was too young to understand the LSD laden roots that inspired this art, my bedroom resembled a hippie hangout.  I had it all:  Black lights, a Lava lamp, one of those fiber optic lamps that would change color, a rotating lamp that projected moving patterns across the wall,  and of course; psychedelic posters.   Under the influence of nothing but music through my headphones, I would sit for hours and get lost in the wonderment of all this visual stimuli.

I’m sure this background had some influence on my latest series: “Kaleidosmoke”.

It all started with some photographs of smoke that I was making for another project.

From there, I added some brilliant colors to the mix.

Lastly, with Photoshop as a tool, I gave it that psychedelic effect that I loved so much as a kid.

Well, I must admit:  I still love it!
