This week we will be hosting out meeting online to simplify things a little. We have an amazing guest speaker joining us from Ontario, Gareth Jones. Gareth will be presenting on creative imagery and his journey.
Photography and digital art are Gareth’s artistic expressions. After taking up photography following a career as a forensic scientist, Gareth has been able to bring his imagination, vision and inquisitive mind to visual life.
Gareth’s art mostly explores bold abstracts or unique perspectives that are created from his original photographs or digital art creations. Gareth uses as many post-processing systems as he has had time to learn as they all provide him with different options and the opportunity for great exploration.
By looking to connect images to viewers in as many ways as possible, Gareth wants to present moments of beauty, quiet joy, enjoyment, or intrigue in balance with his need to draw attention to important issues or subjects be that the planet, architecture, concepts, or commentaries.
Everyone needs a break from the unending negative news all around the world and Gareth is committed to giving people a breather from the stress of today’s world. This is not to say he doesn’t bring difficult issues into his art – but Gareth is convinced that balance is the critical issue, especially as for most of us, our worlds are not in balance. He hopes his art helps to heal this disparate world through creative expressions, thoughtful moments and visual enjoyment or challenge.
