"Unique Visions" by Richard Paul Weiblinger
Unique Visions by Richard Paul Weiblinger
September 11 – November 1, 2015
Richard Paul Weiblinger is an accomplished award winning self-taught photographer. His photographs capture the ever changing moments of our world with a strong emphasis on color. Residing in suburban Maryland, just outside of Washington, D.C., Weiblinger was one of the winners of the Library Gallery Competition for the 2015-2016 season at Montpelier Arts Center in Laurel, MD.
Through his photographs, Weiblinger reveals a passion for exploring our world by transforming everyday views and objects into art. Preferring subjects that lead to images with chromatic strength, he uses creative and natural lighting to not only illuminate his subjects but also to give them a dream-like, surreal quality that speaks of their subtle elegance. Favorite subjects include vibrant flowers, still lifes, maritime images, and landscapes. His close-up images are created using a shallow and selective depth of field. Recently, he has begun using a relatively new post processing technique called HDR (High Dynamic Range) to further explore this interaction. His hope is that each person will view his photographs a little differently and find a new appreciation of the world around them.
Richard Weiblinger has his photographic art work on display in the Main Gallery at the Montpelier Arts Center through Nov. 11. Unique Visions: Richard Paul Weiblinger is a collection of his photographs of everyday views and objects transformed into art. Weiblinger uses creative lighting to illuminate and give a surreal quality and elegance to the subject. Visit the Montpelier Arts Center to experience this very special exhibit.
