Vine Maple Tangle, photograph, 29.5 x 25.5 in.

William Mitchell

It was through the daily study of a Mark Tobey lithograph that I learned to see photographic possibilities in the rhythmically swirling complexities of brush, brambles, and tangled undergrowth of Pacific Northwest coastal forests. With these images, I am exploring the structure of interactions that only appear random on the surface, and I am connecting with the beauty of natural processes that often go unnoticed.
