a virtual exhibition
examining the transmutive nature of our universe through whirred object imagery.
The angle on contemporary abstract-surrealist photography that has informed my recent work germinated as a manifestation of a period where I have found complacency within the confines of conventional portraiture. I have long admired the sleek palettes of editorial fashion photography, and at the point at which I began shooting in this style, I favored the bold styling of such pieces absent of the confined casting and restrictive prerequisites. I was looking for something intentionally obstructed in such a way that it rendered such metrics of beauty to be immaterial to the excellence of its end product. Alchemy can spin gold from any source, and that is the intention of the set which bears its title. The works I have developed in the abstract are object photographs digitally reconstructed with the hope that they may recalibrate the eyes of the spectator towards something fresh and unexpected.
I would be amiss not to thank the incredible network of professional colleagues who have assisted with the germination and curation of this body of work. If you would like to see Alchemy in its physical form in your gallery, pitches for showing will be welcomed so we may examine our mutual vision for the exhibition of the body.
