Expressionism is described as a way to “present the world solely from a subjective perspective, distorting it radically for emotional effect in order to evoke moods or ideas.” My work does just that. By distorting photographic images into free flowing shapes, each viewer has the opportunity to “see” what they need to see. The image may guide the viewer to a particular idea, but the interpretation is solely individual.
A portrait photographer all of her adult life, NY native Diane Marsella has moved from capturing reality to recreating it. Through digital photography, she creates abstract photos from everyday subject matter with the use of Photoshop.
