Single Edition Rainbow Cloudscape™ Collection

Artist Statement

Traditional rainbows are a natural optical phenomenon that is mostly rare, observable only a few times each year, and even then, they're only visible for a brief time before fading away. With air, moisture, wind, and water-rich clouds always in a state of motion and change within our sunlit atmosphere, visible rainbows randomly occur when molecules of water and sunlight intersect at specific angles, allowing a portion of the sunlight passing through to be dispersed and reflected, much like a prism, making the rainbow colors of sunlight visible to the naked eye.

Similarly, when sunlight is passing through the water molecules of clouds and intersects at specific angles, clouds too can reflect and display the phenomenon of rainbow color that can turn regular cloudscapes into spectacular displays of earth’s visible color spectrum.

After witnessing and capturing an amazing variety of rainbow-filled cloudscapes over the last decade, and with each moment having its own unique combination of clouds illuminated with the colors of sunlight, I was inspired to create an artistic style to best showcase these fleeting moments as an art form to be enjoyed by all cultures of the world.

The Rainbow Cloudscape pieces in this collection express the very essence of our sun’s natural color spectrum, with each piece having its own unique combination of wind-swept clouds displaying natural rainbow color that, due to the fleeting nature of clouds, can never be captured the same way ever again.
— Kevin Sibbitt, Taming The Sun Photography Artist

Limited Edition Natural & Mechanical™ Collection

Artist Statements

Purposefully observing nature, taking it all in, letting it happen, and observing intently with the resolve to contemplate “why” is paramount to humans gaining their own understanding of the natural world around us; from its seemingly simplicities, to its contrasting complexities, to it’s natural sustainability, nature continues to amaze those who are looking, and can see.
— Kevin Sibbitt, Taming The Sun Photography Artist

Nature Statement

The collection’s nature pieces are expressed to inspire the observer to deepen their appreciation for the importance of nature as therapeutic relief from our hectic, everyday experiences of modern life that, regardless of our status or importance, doesn’t always provide a steady stream of happiness, gratitude or even basic satisfaction, and as such, the mission of my nature pieces is to humbly remind humankind of the importance nature and its myriad of creations plays in making our everyday lives better and infinitely more enjoyable throughout our lifetime.


Flowers Statement

The collection’s flower pieces are expressed as a celebration of the beauty and grace that flowers bring, and have brought, to people of all cultures around the world since the middle ages. Their incredible diversity, beauty and resilience are legendary and have been utilized for centuries to express a range of human emotions; from youthful love to the grief of loss, flowers seem to say it better than we can say it ourselves.


Color Art Statement

The collection’s color art pieces are created from captures of real-life botanical flowerbeds using a slow shutter speed and random camera movements to streak the image sensor with the colors of sunlight in a multitude of patterns and mixed colors. These natural color palettes are then utilized to create digital works of color art that represent the color spectrum of sunlight as an art form.


Mechanical Statement

The Mechanical pieces included in the collection are created with the artist’s compositional interest in capturing artistic elements within humankind’s mechanical designs, which are expressed in a similar artistic style that brings a certain amount of balance and visual consistency to the collection, despite the natural opposition of the two aesthetics.
