One of our clients sent us this picture of an installation of one of our images as an ” around the corner” installation in a healthcare facility. It is on frosted Plexi and it is 8 feet high by 16 feet long! We think it is a creative way to approach using art for a corridor space.

Water lotus and water lilies have long been a favorite subject of mine. I find myself producing abstracts as well as more literal interpretations of them. Recently I spent a couple of days photographing water lotus and water lilies and a few other subjects. I have posted a number of these new images to my site or you can view a sampling of them view HERE
We all have a sense of the restorative and healing powers of being in the outdoors and experiencing nature. But can simply viewing art that depicts nature aid in healing our bodies? As a fine art nature photographer it is certainly an intriguing concept. One of my motivations when I create a fine art photograph is to help uplift and inspire people. It appears that there may be some physical healing that can take place from viewing art images of nature. Now there is evidence that looking at art that depicts nature can actually have a healing effect on our bodies. Here are some recent findings:
“In Harmony with Nature’s Blueprint” published in Interior Expressions (February 2000), Jain Malkin writes the “effect of nature on humans has been thoroughly studied… humans have physiological and emotional responses to nature.”
In recent years, Roger Ulrich, Ph.D., environmental psychologist, director of the Center for Health Systems and Design, College of Architecture, Texas A&M University, and a leading authority in the field has expounded his “Theory of Supportive Design.” Access to nature is central to this theory. The underlying premise is that “improved medical outcomes are linked to environments’ effectiveness in facilitating stress coping and restoration. Supportive design tries to eliminate stress factors and to include features that reduce stress, calm patients, strengthen coping resources… including access to nature.”
Ulrich has cited numerous studies showing that “viewing nature can produce significant recovery from stress, which in turn, can lead to cost-savings, by improving medical outcomes,” going as far back as a 1984 Science paper which stated: “patients with bedside views of nature had briefer hospital stays and needed less medication.” In a September 2000 presentation titled “Evidence-based Environmental Design for Improving Medical Outcomes,” Ulrich argued that “exposure to nature produces significant recovery.” Both psychological and physiological stress reduction are noted, as measured by “less anxiety, calmness, reduced blood pressure, muscle tension, heart and respiratory rates.”
My show “Water Abstractions” at the Metro Arts Gallery in Nashville, Tennessee is now over. You can view the show online by HERE.
We are pleased to announce an up coming exhibit of my fine art nature photography at The Showroom. The show is titled Wander and Wonder and will run from February 6th through March 2nd. This show will be a little different than most because we will have on display a number of the different options that are popular ways of displaying my work. Additionally, there will be a number of images on display that are not yet currently available to the public at my website such as the image above. You can view the press release for the show here:
WANDER and WONDER
Captivating photographs of nature by Nashville based artist,
Show Runs: February 6th through March 2nd
Gallery Crawl Opening Reception: Saturday, February 6th, 6-9pm
Davis Art Advisory is thrilled to offer our first solo photography show to Nashville based artist, Byron Jorjorian.
Wander and Wonder focuses on the unusual, fleeting moments that nature offers us if we take the time to wander and pay attention. Many of the photographs were taken in various parts of Tennessee, closer to home than we realize. For Jorjorian, patience is a tool. He searches for the moment where light and conditions illuminate those awe-inspiring twinkles in time where ice is about to melt, a leaf is about to fall, or the sun and the rain join together in all its glory. In short, “it is here in the space created by natural conditions and emotional discovery that my images exist.” Even the simplest detail of the interior of a flower is portrayed as if it was at the perfection of maturity caught just before its inevitable decomposition. His creative compositions and classic presentations of rumbling waterfalls, breathtaking panoramas, and charming details are universal in their humbling appeal.
Jorjorian’s disposition of respect is evident in his impressive portfolio and is appreciated by lovers of nature as well as collectors nation wide. Jorjorian’s uplifting photographs have been spotted everywhere from medical centers to the clipboard of a waiter taking orders. The artist has produced over 250,000 images during his 30 + year career, publishing over 10,000 images and placing over 11,000 prints in various locations throughout the United States.

Nashville Arts Magazine is a wonderful magazine published in Nashville, Tennessee that spotlights the talent of Tennessee artists as well as showcasing trends in the art world. In September The Nashville Arts Magazine did an article about my fine art photography. The article includes a gallery of some of my best selling images as well as a short description of my business. You can read the entire article online HERE.
When we think of putting art in a child’s room, the first things that come to mind are bright, primary colors and juvenile images of trucks, cars, princesses and kittens, and then maybe nursery rhymes or famous movie and TV characters. All of these ideas are fine, of course, but they do have their drawbacks. Here are a few different ideas to consider.
Nature photography can create a wonderful atmosphere for a child’s room and there is a great selection of this type of art that you can purchase online. Most children love animals and clear colorful prints of tigers and giraffes, or zebras and monkeys can be just as interesting.
The subtle, calming colors of most art photography are perfect for a little one’s bedroom, and the realistic portrayal of nature in an artistic photograph can also be very educational. As the child grows and learns, the art on the wall can become a focal point of quiet time conversations and bedtime stories.
Choosing a more natural type of art also means that the child will not outgrow the room’s decor quite so soon. Nature photography allows you to move from a simple decorating scheme for an infant, to a more complicated design for a preschooler, and still be effective for the more specific tastes of a young child. For that matter, good nature photography can even move effortlessly into a completely different room in the house such as a family room or den. Investing the money once to buy art such as this for a child’s room will indeed be money well spent.
One other thing you might want to consider before framing the art, is the option of having it mounted instead of framed. This is a process where the art print is fused to a backing and coated with a protective coating so that it can be displayed without frames or glass. If you would rather frame the art, look for frames with art quality Plexiglass instead of glass just for safety reasons.
The art is the investment here, so if your client’s on a tight budget, you should spend less on the framing. For a nursery, you might even consider plastic frames that compliment the colors of the photograph. Large art photos for interior design purchased in poster size are really cute in a toddler’s room and you can purchase poster-size frames that can turn a whole wall into a work of art.
