du Houx limited edition signed prints

arrow222I try to bring the beauty, magic and mystery of nature to viewers by amplifying nature’s essence.

Scientists, innovators, and inventors throughout history took the time to observe nature and her connective rhythms. But now society plugs us into the Internet, and while that can open doors, sometimes too much of being Internet-connected disconnects us from the mysteries of the natural world that are transformational. I want to help show how nature’s interconnectedness can lead us to discoveries about our world and ourselves.

Sometimes when people look deeply into these images, they relax and find a tranquil place in the soul, as one would by taking time to be at peace in nature. At other times, the photographs can refresh, excite, and energize one’s soul, as if one were standing by a waterfall. The images have been said to be dreamlike, healing, Zen meditative, inspiring and thought provoking.

My technique uses movement to create a sense of wonder through colors, textures, memories, and the seasons. Everything within the viewfinder becomes visibly interconnected when objects merge with the motion of the camera as the image, the “lightgraph,” is taken.

Putting the images into categories was extremely challenging as everything is interconnected. Please enjoy the work and check back for more additions regularly added. All images are limited editions for sale and represent over 35 years of work.

New website/blog to highlight Maine artists and writers

The following article appeared in Maine Insights by Morgan Rogers

In order to highlight artists and writers with Maine connections Ramona du Houx has created a new website/blog, INSIGHTS. For many creative people in the state finding a way to gain more exposure to a wider audience is still dependent upon being able to garner the attention of the media.

INSIGHTS lets the public know more about these artists and writers and how they can obtain unique works of these artisans and writers, when their exhibits will be held and how to contact them.

“There are so many artists and writers in Maine that don’t receive the attention they should have. INSIGHTS is a media website that will showcase the talent we have here,” said du Houx. “I will be adding more artists and writers to the site over time to build an online community where we can work together to promote and discuss our work. If anyone is interested they should contact me.” Continue reading

“I’ve been in love with photography since I was twelve. In college I took the apprentice route with different New York photographers, which led to working as a political photographer while pursuing fine art photography.

“The relationship between people around the world with their natural surroundings is a continuing theme of mine. The resilience of the human spirit emerges in amazing ways. Continue reading

Nature is complex yet incredibly logical. In order for science to understand this complexity and to discover more about the natural world they developed categories, aware that many subjects would overlap.

In order for the artist in me to understand more about my art I needed a way to identify why I am attracted to certain subjects. Creating categories, that too overlap, has enabled me to understand more about my art.

I’ve attempted to display my work with the following categories: Continue reading
