ideas. thoughts. brainstorms. schemes. studio scraps. little lightening bolts. works in progress.
Test pieces for a new body of work I will be exhibiting in September 2020. Playing with light, entrances and exits, surface manipulation, and condensation as a means to convey exact moments of grief both pierced and slowly revisited.
Sifting through old images (left, summer 2019) and new images (right, last night - 1/24/2020) I still think about what the next chapters of junk dazzle silhouettes could look like - the body interacting with material/more abstraction of the body itself vs. letting the body totally be as is with no forced posing to "look good" or appear a certain calibrated and calculated way, even though there's certainly calculated positions I automatically go to in both of these shots.
I often go back and forth that me/my body/my face/anything directly and obviously mememememe should take a backseat in newer work, at least for a little while. I don't really know why, but perhaps the uncertainty and internal struggle can feed the work itself.
