It’s a conceptual style of abstract Macro photography which focuses on photographing a subject close-up, but it deviates from the hyper-realistic macro style used by mainstream photographers (photo-realistic bugs for example) by emphasizing what is important in the photographer’s frame at the moment.
Macro Expressionism isn’t concerned with the representation of the object as a whole. The focus is on mood, color, form, how light affects shapes by adding depth and atmosphere to the objects within the frame.
My inspiration comes from being an abstract painter and the love of a good Color Field painting or a wonderfully seductive use of paint which was the hallmark of the Abstract Expressionists.
