"Yellow Ranunculus" Fine Art Photography Floral by Vitaly Geyman 20" x 30"
This lone brilliant yellow ranunculus is set against an antiqued turquoise background for a sophisticated stylized floral piece that adds vibrance and color to any decor. Artist grade gallery-wrapped canvas, archival inks, wooden stretcher bars, and UVB protective coating 20" x 30". Brilliantly colored flowers are ranunculus' chief attraction, and they are indeed special. They most often come in multiple layers of delicate, crepe paper--thin petals, looking like an origami masterwork. Ranunculus (R. asiaticus) excel in southern and western gardens, and make terrific container plants everywhere. They also make long-lasting cut flowers. One of the most common type, the Tecolote strain, flowers are mostly fully double, 3 to 6 inches wide, and available in bicolored picotee, gold, pastel mix, pink, red, rose, salmon, sunset orange, white, and yellow. The less common Bloomingdale strain is shorter, to 10 inches, with pale orange, pink, red, yellow, and white double flowers.
About the Photographer
Born in The Ukraine, Vitaly spent the first twelve years of his life in Kiev, a colorful and culturally rich city replete with old cathedrals and large oak trees. He was a sensitive and highly imaginative child. Vitaly viewed the world as a series of moving pictures. Stored in his memory, the visions of this ancient city would later come to him in dreams.
At the age of twelve his parents decided to leave what was then the U.S.S.R, as political refugees. After spending time in Italy they immigrated to Australia where Vitaly spent his formative years. The beauty and vastness of Australia touched his heart and it is where he began his love affair with nature. However, it was not until his move to the United States in 2003 that he begun to fully immerse himself in the art of photography.
Vitaly received an MBA from Monash University in Australia. He was also trained as an actor and a life coach. His photography comes from a multidisciplinary perspective. It conveys his intimate connection with nature and the power of its beauty. Vitaly’s work has been greatly influenced by David Lorenz Winston, a mentor and a friend who is an acclaimed photographer, well known for his serene winter landscapes including his work titled, Solitude.
Vitaly’s soulful, dreamlike fine art photography has also been greatly influenced by the work of John Wimberley, a well known photographer who has a great collection of B&W photography, with over 50 exhibitions. It is John’s belief that great photographic art transports us into another dimension. Vitaly's artistic journey is an ongoing exploration of the beauty, simplicity and wisdom of nature. It is a continuous learning process, inspired by passion and love of life.
