Julia Hollingsworth McLemore

I have always been fascinated with light, color, flowers and beautiful paper. I love handling the natural materials. I've focused my camera on other subjects, but have always come back to the flowers...because I need Beauty in my world.

The flower or leaf’s interior space is revealed as light is shone through in the photographic process. The more translucent the plant or flower, the better the backlighting illumination, so I look for that when I choose my “models”.We grow many of the flowers you see and our friends are generous to let us pick flowers in their gardens. Take a look at some of the titles and you'll see friends' names, and street names where we've lived and where my gardens were.

I use words like "dance" or "float" in the titles to illustrate what I see as the compositions evolve, and to portray the emotions I put into the work. Even at 5" x 7" card size you can see the close-up detail of the plants and flowers--their veins, water droplets, stems and leaves. They’re not perfect flowers, they’ve lived a bit and that brings more visual interest to me.

I enjoy and appreciate many artists and photographers and many kinds of art, but I always go back to Matisse, Gauguin, and Imogen Cunningham when I want to bask in imagery.

My art is dedicated to the memory of my mother, Ruth Green Hollingsworth. My company, Green Ink, is named after her. She had confidence in me when I doubted myself the most.
