Sam Dobrow’s exhibition opens at Kcüll Artist Collective at Coconut Village in Coconut Grove, Florida. Sam Dobrow presents it as follow:
As an artist living in Coconut Grove, I am honored to exhibit my surreal photographic art with Kcüll (pronounced “cool”). After Jennifer Noll, founder of the Kcüll Artist Collective, invited me to participate in her rotating exhibit of local artists, we selected six works from the Oceana Series of my Surreality Collection. The exhibit runs through early March.
The Oceana Series
The Oceana Series depicts South Beach’s Ocean Drive as an altered reality. Because the beautiful art deco buildings were photographed at night when there was no traffic, the beauty of the neon lights and absence of automobiles imparts a timeless feeling. Upon my return to the digital darkroom, I took the reality of South Beach into another dimension by pulling, melting and stretching the the scenes to portray a surreal world. My transformation of the hard geometric architecture into liquid organic shapes brings the scene to life.
About Sam Dobrow
Sam Dobrow is a contemporary photographic artist who lives and works in the artist village of Coconut Grove, Florida. In the digital darkroom, Sam continues to test the boundaries of photography. All of his artwork begins in the camera and evolves into images with intensely beautiful constructs amplified by his emotions and perceptions of the world and its inhabitants. Whether it is a street scene, portrait or figurative works, Sam captures beauty by presenting subjects shaped by light, framed by strong graphical elements, and emotionally supercharged by the thoughtful choice of color.
According to Sam, the art of photography begins with a feeling, followed by seeing through the camera with anticipation, and ultimately developing an image that speaks to that feeling.
