Photographer Liz Wuillermin combines techniques she first began to experiment with in the darkroom years ago with current digital technology to create her latest exhibit, “Sacred Earth Designs,” currently on display at the Seaview Resort Gallery in Galloway Township.
Wuillermin uses a technique to “mirror and repeat” a single photographed image and transform it into abstract patterns. She takes natural objects such as flowers, feathers, wood or stones, and creates what she calls “an ethereal tapestry.”
The complex components of her photographs are similar to textile designs.
Growing up on a farm in South Jersey, Wuillermin writes in her artist’s notes that she was inspired by the rich color, texture and pattern in nature.
In her successful 30-year career as a freelance corporate publication and editorial photographer, Wuillermin photographed many notable individuals, including Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, the Dalai Lama, Miles Davis and Mick Jagger. Her commercial work has been featured in several major magazines and her portrait and editorial work also hangs in The Philadelphia Visitor’s Center, The Pennsylvania Convention Center and the WPVI Channel Six Building on City Line Avenue in Philadelphia.
Her photographic artwork is in the permanent collections of AtlantiCare Foundation’s Healing Arts Program, Shore Memorial Hospital and Lehigh University, Bethlehem, Pa.
The “Sacred Earth Designs” exhibit can be seen until Nov. 17.
