ARTISTS STATEMENT

 

Robert Buelteman is a celebrated fine art photographer whose works connect audience to subject in an emotionally transcendent manner. Whether examining the spirit of the landscape or inquiring into the design of nature, his work is a powerful extraction of beauty and substance revealing unrecognized dimensions in the commonplace.

 

In 1999, Buelteman left photographic tradition behind, and began using a unique method made without cameras, lenses, or computers to create “energetic photograms.” Working directly with large sheets of photographic film, living plants are used as a filter through which high- voltage electricity and fiber-optically-delivered light is passed. The resulting images open a window on life’s mysteries, and were compared by the Los Angeles Times with photographs of our universe made by the Hubble Telescope.
