About

Still life photograph of a close up garden landscape with a soft yellow monarch butterfly and white flowers "Butterfly" by Hudson Valley based artist, Lori Van Houten Pigment print on Moab Entrada rag paper Edition of 5 16 x 16 inches unframed, 23 x 23 inches in dark wood frame with black 8-ply mat and non-glare glass Wire backing for easy hanging This romantic still life photograph was shot by Lori Van Houten in 2020. The scene features a soft yellow and black Monarch butterfly resting peacefully on soft white flower petals. Dark green leaves that fade into into a shadowed garden contrast elegantly against the bright foreground. The still life image is complemented with a dark wood frame with a black 8-ply mat and non-glare glass. The piece is ready to hang as is. Artist Statement: Raptors and Songbirds, my most recent series of multi-panel photographic works, alludes to the long tradition of storytelling as a means of understanding human experience. Stories suggest ways to interpret mysteries and provide the necessary tales for survival. In particular, fairy tales have long been a rich source, often employing divine powers and other supernatural characters to pass down relevant life experiences. This series flirts with the methods of the fairy tale; seducing with color and beauty while using flora and fauna as cautionary messengers. I photograph and create libraries of images then used to form narratives; similar in structure to words building a sentence. My goal is not to tell a complete tale but to suggest phrases or fragments of sentences over heard in passing. There is an urgency to understanding the message although the story may not be entirely clear. All of the photographs in the Raptors and Songbird series are made with modified Polaroid cameras. I use the attributes of instant film to record motion, alter color and provide a slightly skewed vision. The film is scanned with high resolution and printed on Moab Entrada rag paper.
