An appearance of a honey bee in the center of a daisy, moving aside a wild flamed poppy brings eternal consciousness or sweetness or intention to penetrate your brain, when the only view from your window leads to a fantasy swan, soft feather pink and shimmering at night. An aquarium of fading blues mixed with milky white colours marks the premise of a languid summer, as the world lies ahead bright new to explore.
The photography of Barbara Storey is an endless storytelling of wonders, she creates unique images of landscapes, nature and still life. Through the use of digital art she wisely breaks the barriers of time and space, creating dreamy parallel realities. Every image is a construction of novelty, nothing seems the same as before and all instantly merge into a new splendour of art.This artist certainly goes the extra mile to stir your imagination, to make you see things from another perspective and ultimately elevate your spirit. Every picture of hers is a constant invite to forget your earthly responsibilities like work, home and family and embark to a string of pearls. Each pearl is a lifetime, perhaps long forgotten or simply a reminder of how day-to-day life should be. Visions, dreams, abiding aspirations and through her images the real magic begins...
