Mother Nature Through the Lens of Marilyn E. Robertson

Marilyn E. RobertsonFor many years I worked in mixed media, creating abstract art on large canvases, often using my photographs within the art work. But over the last ten years my focus has been mostly on the photography. I still do more abstract work than realistic, but will work with whatever style gets my thoughts across.

Recently, I illustrated Rob Bryanton’s latest book “O is for Omniverse”, and used a combination of drawing, painting, photography and digital manipulation to portray the ideas that he has put forth.

To me, nature is awe inspiring and I attempt to show the beauty I see, in my photographs.

Mother Nature is constantly creating works of art. When the fog rolls in, everything becomes very mystical and mysterious; when the sun peeks through the parted clouds it accents and emphasizes; when flakes of snow are sprinkled across the angles of boulders, cubist abstracts are created.

And liquid water is the most wonderful of all. Constantly changing shapes and colours, reflecting back the surrounding colours or the colour of the sky above, it laps or burbles or crashes against the shore. Rocks too, intrigue me. The earth takes all manner of matter, and under pressure creates rock, then sets to work on crumbling it to dust once again. It’s part of nature’s recycling program.

Trees also get recycled. While growing they provide home and food to creatures big and small, and with assistance from millions other processes and critters, they rot away to replenish what they have drawn from the soil and air.

I find beauty in all aspects of nature big and small, because I find a beauty in the wisdom of the process itself. Nothing is wasted– everything is re-processed–no matter how long it takes. It is in nature that I feel at one with the universe and find a serenity that radiates into my soul. I hope that viewers of my photos will see that peace as well.

cliffs

There are red ochre bluffs nearby, and the layers intrigue me.

rain

Tiny water droplets on a leaf, shimmering in the light

*

rock

Natural rust streaking the gray rock surface, giving us a hint of its composition.

rocks

A row of boulders, dropped by the rushing spring waters, reflect in the clear waters of fall’s lazy river.

*

roots

Weathered roots at the riverside. Somehow, these roots still seem to give sustenance to the tree.

roots

Roots gnarled and weathered by many years of changing water levels.

    We have driftwood and logs below our house and across the road on the beach. I love the pics of the lines and loops and curves showing how that tree grew when it was alive. Love them. Thanks for sharing.
    Love and Light,
    Lauren

    An inspiration to take your camera, get out in Nature, open your eyes (physical and spiritual) and see what is being revealed.
