Barbara Vaughn combines her love of water and an appetite for abstraction and distills an inventive formula that "springs from an unexpected confluence of nature and the man-made world...." For this artist, inspiration comes from the magic of harnessing water's inherent ability to mirror and transform the appearance of objects in and around it. Vaughn captures the reflective visual chemistry of the sun, sky and wind through a cameras lens at just the right decisive moment, which results in amazing abstract compositions whose original sources are barely recognizable, but memorably beautiful in their simplicity and ingenuity.
