Design and Architecture firm Workshop/APD has acquired a large Tranquil Waters print for a New York design project. It’s an honor to have my Pacific Ocean photographs make an appearance on the Atlantic side. These liquid abstractions are often the confluence of three movements: water, watercraft, and camera. All three are typically moving simultaneously in these photographs and the results are often surprisingly exciting or a complete failure. I may be better known for my monochromatic impressions of California deserts yet I’ve lived in close proximity to the Pacific Ocean my entire life. In my experience, the vast infinite and solitude of open water is not at all unlike standing on a desert summit with the vast and infinite stretched before my feet.
Art is rarely bought on a whim, and Xinet’s purchase of Sierra Wave Over Mt. Tom was no exception. Kathleen at Xinet explains:
“When I saw the Sierra Wave I knew it could be perfect. We are based in California, our CEO is a hang glider and is always checking the clouds over Mt. Tamalpais from our west-facing windows and often in the evening the ‘Sunset Review Board’ (ie whoever’s working late) gathers in the lunch room for end of the day adult beverages! Also, the company used to be called Mt. Xinu and the logo was an image of overlapping purple mountains. So this is more than just something nice to put in the lobby that matches the furniture, I think it resonates with who we are.“
Kathleen reports that the “photograph has gotten lots of great comments and makes the reception area feel so much warmer“. It’s a genuine thrill to hear this, Kathleen! Thank you and Xinet.
