Artist Spotlight: Donn Delson

Donn Delson, Celestial Motion, Giclee Archival Print, Limited Edition of 15, 40x40"
My show is about stillness and motion.
Some of the images reflect the quiet stillness of a distant galaxy, or deserted desert road.

Donn Delson, Daydreaming, Alumininum Archival Print, Limited Edition of 15, 26x38"
Some reflect the kinetic energy of motion captured in a moving car, or a rock, inexplicably traveling across a barren, cracked desert floor.

There is an interesting symmetry I find between the two. While on the one hand, I'm drawn to visuals that, in an overstimulated world, evoke a sense of timelessness and tranquility, and give the viewer's eye a chance to rest for a few moments, undisturbed. I'm also drawn to the energy of motion, how it enters and leaves a space, and the relationship between the static, and dynamic elements in that space, in the moment, and over time. I don't find these to be mutually exclusive, but rather complementary, along a continuum.
