About Abstraction in Rust: A View of Nashville
Nashville native Craig Brabson
has been a photographer for more than 20 years. He attended the Atlanta College of Art and earned a photography degree from Nashville State Community College. His career has encompassed commercial photography, portraits and the music industry. In 1991, he began exhibiting his photographic art in galleries and museums throughout the Southeastern United States.
“My artwork examines the world around us through the photography of objects in their natural environment. In my work, I strive to portray the world as it is with no enhancements or special lighting. My work reveals intimate conditions around us, drawing the viewer into the work to reflect upon that condition. The viewer is engaged through unique compositions and perspectives, often seeing familiar subjects for the first time.”
“I spent countless hours cultivating imagery from the rusted landscapes of metal. My photographic process often reminds me of the delicate intentionality of wildlife photographers; the act of capturing the perfect dew drop at the tip of a glistening petal from a spring wild flower. I understand that creating great imagery is wrapped up in the act of keen attention to the dynamic scenery that is often found in unexpected places. This philosophy is what drives my creative vision today.”
