Basically, abstract post modern for myself is a journey into color, texture, and inner perceptions. I peer into the not so obvious subject matter of everyday life. I attempt to remove the veil of surface textures expose what lies beneath or that which consumes the surface facade. Mixed Media is my preferred method. The range of mediums to use is great and diverse and is not limited to just types of paint.

The majority of works in Empire 1 Studio's Mixed Media Abstract Art section are significant for acrylic, oil, aerosol, and enamel paint compositions on canvas. Here the methodology is open, unlocked, and inclusive for materials, styles, and expression. A minority of the compositions represented involve photography and digital graphics or traditional ink drawing styles replete with graphics editing to form unique hybrid forms. In the case of the Red Cross print, the hybrid form is a composite of two different traditional abstract mixed media canvas paintings that has had their images digitally integrated. Some of these images are from the "TalkingPipe" series. We offer this post modern style for original commissioned fine art. These images contain watermarks.

Graphic Design is formally considered a type of visual and design communication. Graphic designers use many elements not limited to words and images to form visual symbols that can represent an idea or a distinct message. Graphic Design involves substantial forethought and planning in the process of preparing a visual form that effectively communicates to a target audience. Branding and Logo projects are a common Graphic Design task whether it is for a small business or a community organization.

The Empire 1 Studio Graphic Design figures on display here, are significant for web site development, retail fashion and event configurations. The banner image is the "GreenBanzai," (...may you live 10,000 years...) Print. The GreenBanzai print (available) was inspired by the Fukushima Nuclear Accident. You can visit our GreenBanzai FB Page for more information. The print was a collaboration between Hung Nguyen & Dick Arn. Its composition developed from elements of photography and digital design.

Photography is subject matter, composition, and lighting. Subject matter can be a matter of preference and a passion, regardless selection of subject matter is key to good commercial photography. This studio looks to capture symmetry and asymmetry magnified by a distinct perspective in photo composition. The manipulation of lighting is a paramount tool for it in itself can make the difference between an average photograph and a great photograph that has substantial depth and tonal shades. That being said lighting can also provide striking contrast in photos that produce a flat tonality. In sum photography is a creative expirement of these three factors.

Typically, Empire 1 Studio works with raw modeling talent significant for individuals with exceptional life experience, character, and personality attributes. On occasion and per requirements of the work professional models are utilized. The photos below are cogent for their captive temperaments in fashion, fantasy, and portrait photography assignments. Currently no photographic prints are available for purchase.

Outdoor & Nature Photography is about about a bunch of technical features or knowing your way around your camera...one, can effectively mitigate environmental variables such as overcast clouds or a bright beaming sun. Some basic technical guidelines include using the RAW image setting, knowing what a gray card is used for, and incorporating the Sunny f16 Rule into your camera practices.

These nature and outdoor photos were taken during business travels and professional studies. This is North American geography. Locations we have viewed through the lens include Alaska, British Columbia,the Yukon, Kansas, New Mexico, Nevada, and Utah. More specific examples represented involve the Mendenhall Glacier, Eagle Glacier, Herbert Glacier, Salt Flats, Lake Tahoe, and the Prairie. Currently no prints are available.
