Americana Blues

"One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things."    ~Henry Miller

For this series, two photographs were taken at each location - one, of a selected subject, and another of the sky above it.

Sky is the element that connects all of the photographs. The color blue connects each subject with its corresponding sky. The juxtaposition of context and perspective is intended to evoke a shift in perception where the viewer is invited to become the central element that connects the two images in each pair and offers access to both; to be present, to be open to a dynamic that mirrors the intention of the Bluecoup Project.

This work was inspired by themes of unity and inter-connectedness. The Argentinian poet, Antonio Porchia said, "If you do not raise your eyes, you will think you are the highest point." The question then becomes how to see from a higher place that we cannot reach except through intention, imagination and reflection.

Americana Blues will be exhibited March 23 - April 22, 2018 at Artspace Gallery in Richmond VA as part of a group art exhibition to raise awareness of the Bluecoup project.

The Bluecoup Project logo
The Bluecoup Project proposes a new worldwide symbol – a sky-blue streamer to fly on flagpoles and front porches, on balconies and lampposts. Its simple and welcoming message of unity reminds us that all of humankind is our family and Earth is our home.

Bluecoup would love to see your photos of earth and sky:
