I want to share how the Hiero's were born. Part of a film clip that I was photographing about eight years ago showed sunlight reflecting on rippling water stemming from a light breeze as in interlude with the fading in and out of scenes in the film. This interlude appeared over some of the scenes I intended to do still photos of. I noticed the forms of the reflections and was fascinated at the many interesting figures I had arrested on film. I systematically went through the whole film and photographed each frame separately where this overlapping of rippling light on the scenes took place. Here is a short example.
This is the painting which resulted, done in acrylic paint and gold leaf. 135 cm x 100 cm.
