Land Escapes Series
The Redness in Reflection is part of the Land Escapes series. Land Escapes are distant horizons and earthly ecologies that can be found in the close-up detail of reflections. This wonderful world of shapes, colour, light and form on the surface of the water is a source for endless imagination and visual meditation.
Location: Seaforth Middle Harbour, Sydney Australia
Based in: Sydney
“ My art is a series of original photographs that capture moments in time when nature coalesces into visual abstraction on the surface of the water. The images are not photo-shopped or artificially created. They are images that nature has created and exist in reality. They are designed as peaceful meditations on the way we engage with the environment in which we live and how we think, see and communicate our sense of “being” in it…”
Ralph Kerle is one of Australia’s foremost contemporary abstract art photographers, based in Sydney, Australia. His work has been featured in numerous photography exhibitions and galleries in Australia and world-wide. He creates photographic art by capturing real abstract images that exist in nature, focusing on water surfaces to create an abstract form of ocean and nature art photography.
Ralph’s work reflects his meditative and therapeutic experiences kayaking on Sydney’s harbour, where observing abstract images on the water’s surface opened his mind to new doorways of perception and creative inspiration. His digital art photography seeks to represent and communicate these transcendental moments experienced on the water.
Before his emergence as a photographic artist, Ralph had been involved in fine art in Australia since the 1970s, graduating from the Victorian College of The Arts majoring in Dramatic Arts in 1979 and with a Masters in Creative Industries. He came to prominence in Australia in the early 90s as an arts pioneer in multi-media performance whilst he was Associate Director of Sydney Theatre Company. This work led him to a decade or so in directing TV commercials with Australia’s leading advertising agencies.
Abstract photographic art
This series of work represents a return to and re-interpretation of his earlier multi-media work in a domain that has now metamorphosed into photographic art. His focus is on the capture of images created by and in nature and the conceptualization of those images into fine art abstract photographic artworks and it is through his past creative experiences, he has developed this unique visual style – “his aesthetic eye.”
His work is now held in corporate and private collections in Australia, China, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Latvia, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, UAE, United Kingdom and the USA.
