Jim Aiken

 "Many places I’ve lived, Vermont, Stockholm, Colorado have distinctive light effects that amplify reflections, shadows, shapes and colors.  I am captivated by light creating, altering, and exaggerating color as it filters through the atmosphere or autumn leaves, mirrors off water, touches a person’s face, causes a dramatic sunrise or sunset, or reflects off old town windows.  I like subjects that allow me to exaggerate a sense of motion, sound, or touch. I want the visual experience to conjure up other senses.  Usually my images are of nature, both real landscapes and synthesized ones.  But, even with a portrait, I like to capture a transient smile or a unique moment in time.  Recently, I have been experimenting with abstract images that convey motion, color harmony, and earth elements, which for me, is an extension of my adventures with light in nature."
