Future Memories, Nuit Americaine, Danube and Other Worlds are four series of complex worlds characterized by the tension between realism and imagination. As the artist started playing with digital photography, Nelson felt that a single photograph was not expressing her personal experience of the landscape and the story of the world she perceives. Created from numerous source images photographed by her, Nelson digitally “paints” together sometimes hundreds of images into new, imagined and personal landscapes. Continually using the sphere or circle composition, the viewer either enters the center with an explosion of color and form from the outer rim, or the center is a three dimensional push offering the viewer minute details of fish swimming or butterflies about to fly out into the real world. Nelson’s themes of water, air, light and earth are combined with the drama and narrative of time, presenting captive and beautiful renditions of life on our planet.
