I have been obsessed with details for as long as I can remember. I would often try and photograph extreme close ups of objects to try and uncover the elusive detail that caught my eye. I think I am getting better at capturing what sparked my interest at a micro level but often the interest lies in how those details play together.
Here are some recent photos of my studies in the relationship of details.
Looking down and looking up - design is in the details. The vase that brings out the deep teal in the painting, the contrast between the smooth marble and the black and white tiles, The choice to add a small work of art to your vanity or desk. All these little details create a space that is blooming with your tastes.
Similarly the choice of fabric, the addition of a bit of sparkle or a contrasting line, the wainscotting surrounding a modern painting in a traditional space. These are design choices in art.
It has been so much fun to explore these details and to start to see them more in my daily life. It is incredible what you see, when you begin to look.
