Real-Un-Real are experiments in photography’s relationship to abstraction. Through this series I want to give the viewer an image that they can engage with in a way outside of our regular perception of reality. The motivation is to create photographs based on pure aesthetics that have the same rules as an abstract painting piece. The visual noise in the works become a cacophony that only allows for bits and pieces of recognized forms to emerge, tricking the viewer and acting as sanctuary for the restless eye. The segments of nude in the works is the most human and relatable imagery for me. It has always acted as a source of calm and beauty in my work, and provides the visual clues that keep the viewer engaged and searching the piece the piece for answers.
Just got word that this piece Chaotic Forms No.76 is going to be on display at Loosen Art in Cagliari, Italy!
It will also be on display at a show I curated "Mirror With A Memory, Alternative Process Photography in the 20th Century" at Peter Miller Fine Art opening October 20th! Hope you can make it!
