FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Digital Artist Wendy J. St. Christopher Explores Repetition and Symmetry With New Kaleidoscopic Print Collection
SAN ANTONIO, Tex., USA – Feb. 04, 2014 / – Wendy J. St. Christopher, digital artist and photographer, introduces an intriguing collection of twenty new images, based on the colorful patterning of kaleidoscopes and mandalas. The 'Natural Attributes' collection, is seen online, at http://www.art166.com
After viewing her art, it's easy to imagine Wendy J. St. Christopher as a child, gazing into a kaleidoscope and daydreaming an afternoon away.
"I grew up on the wrongest side of the wrong side of the tracks," she says, with a wry grin. "In those drab, dreary days, I was always happy to lose myself in the colorful and unexpected -- which I usually found in the pages of books, or the Sears catalog. Now, 'colorful and unexpected' are the primary focus of my art."
Wendy's newest collection of images, titled 'Natural Attributes', is lushly layered and vibrantly hued. The vivid color palette is mostly sampled from nature: fruits, vegetables, flowers, trees, and other natural elements are all represented in these complex images.
A lifelong insomniac, the idea for the collection came as Wendy was searching for a 3 a.m. snack. The one thing she found, she refused to eat. But, the soft, green, color of the vegetable was suddenly intriguing, and had her reaching for a camera.
"Does anyone like asparagus?" asks the artist. "There was a can lurking in the kitchen cabinet for three years. I just knew I'd find a good use for it, eventually."
