Artist's Statement

Weldon Brewster

Aqueous - Archival Pigment Prints - 15” x 24” I’ve always admired the freedom that painters have to create anything they please on their canvases. As a photographer I crave to create my own vision that is quite different to the world around me. These images are not what they seem, these photographs are not landscapes. What you see is not what your mind categorizes it as. I want to cast away the visual anchors that viewers rely on so they can free their imaginations. I want the viewer to feel the spirit of the mountain by not seeing the mountain. The images of towering pinnacles are actually quite small vignettes in a crashing sea. The power of the mountains and the power of the sea become one for the viewer in their imaginations.
