Design+Art Exhibit at Kirksey Architecture / by Graciela Socorro

This week of June 19th to 23rd, I will be showcasing my photography work "Between Sun and Palms" along with thirteen local artists at Kirksey's private exhibition celebrating Design+Art month 2017, Houston, TX. 

About Between Sun And Palms
I've been working on this portfolio since 2011 and it is my very first time exhibiting it in Houston, TX. It consists of an image of a palm tree multiplied numerous time using Adobe Photoshop. No color is altered. 

These images are from different species of palms tress taken in Maracaibo, Venezuela during dry and rain season. I began taking images of palms trees because I really loved the minimalism, geometry and colors of these dynamics leaves. Playing with light and shadow, colors and lines, I decides to multiply an image creating an optical illusion that really captives the eye.

I will be presenting 10 giclée prints using  Hahnemühle German Etching and William Turner paper, 310 gsm, 11"x17".
