Tallmadge Doyle

Celestial Ocean

Daydreaming of deep open waters and vast expansive space. Feeling the freedom to conjure up images from magnificent and mysterious realms of ocean life and heavenly bodies in co-existence. Intricate perspectives of the microscopic and telescopic which leave the imagination open to consider boundless potential. 

Seemingly dissimilar sites yet at times indistinguishable, overlapping to meld a wondrous phenomenal relationship of forms. Playgrounds for new realities too energetic to be positioned in any one place. Where color is ethereal, vivid and brilliant. Where light is unpredictable and form vibrates, allowing access into the immensity of the unexplored.
