About the Artist

My name's Amar (pronounced like "summer" but without the "s"). I work in large and medium format photography, color and b&w. I run a skate shop and clothing line called EVRYNG. My photo studio is currently located in Bee Caves, Texas, just outside of Austin.

Abstract connections are what I seek in my photography - a collection of colors, lines, shapes and forms that tell a story which can not be conveyed by words.

Artist Statement

My latest abstract series, Isolate, questions the limits of the photographic medium by distorting images through precise color gradient manipulation. This unique process creates an image that relates more closely to first and second generation abstract expressionists. My interest in extreme photographic manipulation was born out of the belief that creation within photography is limitless. This notion stands in stark contrast to the expected function of a camera, which is to truthfully document reality. Isolate overcomes these boundaries of normalcy, and, within it, one will discover a seamless connection between the essential mediums of painting and photography, and unearth impressions provoked by the prevalence of creativity over media constraint.
