Gallery Storks is publishing a book of Ramona’s art called, Transformations—
Revealing nature’s complex balance. Later this year the gallery will hold an exhibit solely of the work in Transformations when the book is released. These images are from the book, some are currently on exhibit at Gallery Storks, in Tokyo, Japan in the March show Treasures.
Ramona du Houx creates fine art photography that looks like watercolor paintings evoking mystery and a sense of wonder. Some find them nostalgic and some mystical.
“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, and thought provoking,” said Ramona.

“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,” said du Houx.
Ramona has been “painting with the camera” since 1979, is currently is also a member of the Maine Artist Collective, http://www.maineartistcollective.com and the Harlow Gallery.
The photographic watercolor technique is always a challenge.
“I never know exactly what the results will be, that’s the exciting part of the creation,” said du Houx. “I believe every photograph has an audience, someone the work will speak to personally.”
