Dobree’s Impressionistic Revelations by Barbara Hano

 

If you love the art of photography, this is your exhibition. Dobree Adams is a rare impressionist artist who creates

in and through photographic images.

   In today’s flood of pictorial (and hyper) reality, why is her art so special, making us marvel in fascination before

each image? Because her work is a journey of revelation beyond the frames and into the mystery of nature — its

power, glory, intensity and evanescence.

   She makes us see and feel anew the poetry and art of nature, overwhelming us with beauty. How does she do it?

Immersing herself in nature all around her, she observes the range of natural phenomena and seizes relationships

in unfamiliar juxtapositions to discover the inner essence of a scene. She doesn’t reproduce or show a scene: she

envisages it, then expresses her experiences with sensitive invention, talent and crafting skill.

   Starting with focus and selection, Dobree structures her compositions with every element of visual art —

patterning of lines and forms; plasticity and textures, shade and light in multiple reflections and refractions,

color and nuanced tonal hues; perspective — angles and lines of vision, scope and depth with unexpected vantage

points. Seizing the flux of life, she evokes its throbbing organic essence in slices of time and space.

   The lens can only photograph: it’s the artist who envisages, creates and realizes such mysterious, ambiguous

universes. Look closely at her image pairs and trios, but beware of appearances, for her phenomena transmute

as you gaze: time passes in rhythms and cycles (sunset to dawn) as seasons permutate: fall’s melting frost in pond

and puddle becomes trapped in wintry ice and ambivalent snow; a still pastoral calm may conceal threatening

danger.

   Watch her koi fish trio, from initial swishing to probing assertion to explosive high drama in their bright

orange and speckled splendor.

   We experience the ‘story’ evoked in Dobree’s scenes — the before and after, the space and place beyond.

   In the ‘Ophelia’ set of five modulations, who is this Ophelia? Why is she here? Where did she come from?

Did she escape from Hamlet? What will happen as she suggestively floats, partly submerged in these muted,

subtly menacing environments?

   And finally, Dobree’s photographic art, like all genuine art, raises questions, makes us wonder and imagine.

It is memorable, penetrating our consciousness, drawing us into her world, reaching deep within us, and

continuing to enrich our sense of fullness over time.
