In his landscape photography Konecky draws on a number of sources for inspiration – the abstract geometry of Richard Diebenkorn’s Ocean Park paintings and the pure abstraction of monochromatic line in the paintings of Franz Kline; the flowing colour of traditional Japanese woodblock printers and water colourists like Hiroshige and contemporary photographers such as Edward Burtinski or David Burdeny. He has also had a longstanding interest in and passion for macro photography and the way it changes the reality of what you see. The deeper one delves into an object, the more it becomes something else: distilled form, light, shadow and shape.
The starting point of ‘Analogous Textures’ is a traditional approach to floral still life. But before long the project navigates a course well beyond the world of plants. Fascinated by aesthetics of increasingly abstract surface textures Richard Konecky’s images effortlessly embrace and explore aesthetic analogies between plants, the human body and land. The photo book ‘Analogous Textures’ features 39 images of the series. Follow book for more information or ordering the book.
