Circular Motion II
Sonia Melnikova-Raich was trained and worked as an architect and artist in Moscow, Russia, before she moved to San Francisco in 1987. She exhibits locally and nationally and has been with solo and group shows, contest wins and publica- tions including F-Stop Photography Magazine, Diffusion Journal of Unconventional Photography, Shadow & Light Magazine, Bokeh Bokeh Photography, Lenscratch Magazine and Creativity Quarterly Journal of Art & Design.
“Circular Motion” is a group of digitally transformed and recontextualizied improvisations based on my original photographs of ordinary and inconspicuous objects. I faithfully preserve the lighting, colors, and textures of the photo-graphed objects and digitally “rebuild” the form. The result is an abstract or surreal image with cosmic overtones, transcending the material and mundane to become ethereal and significant.
