ARTIST STATEMENT

R.Lewis HootenI started by photographing my species orchid collection. After I achieved a level of success with beautiful images, I felt that there was something more for me to find. I always knew that I “saw” nature differently than others and that I saw patterns and shapes that others missed.

Digital imaging opened up a new way of looking at many different aspects of creating images. My work is organic, focusing on living and dead plant materials and showing how in death plant materials can still be manipulated into interesting, lively works of art.
