Rudi A. Blondia
Artist Reception: November 10th | 4-7:00pm
Made and assembled in Belgium but reprogrammed in California. I’ve been photographing as a calling for the last decade and I’m always looking for beauty expressed by energy, forms, light and raw emotions.
The journey to photography wasn’t the most straightforward one. I started out as a composer/conductor by training, dabbled in painting but spent a lifetime as a self-made inventor in cutting edge technology covering a variety of art and technology fields.
Laser and light special effects in music performance, movies and entertainment installations brought me to Los Angeles, California, where exposed to brilliant talent, I developed the ability to see beyond the surface. I don’t photograph subjects but I photograph the way they make me feel and how this translates into a visual story. I’m currently based in Stockton, California but I have the privilege to work all over the world with great teams.
In my spare time, I’m converting a Stockton historic firehouse into a gallery, studio, darkroom and meeting space for the creative community.
