I'll have to go and see your original work. The Outsider Folk Art Gallery has a very nice exhibition program- my friend Emily Branch is managing the space. You might have met her?
Thank You Kristen. The works are digital alterations of my photos. All of the images were originally photographs that I manipulated into abstract formations. I notice you live in Reading. I have original Pen & Ink drawings at Goggle Works in The Outsider Folk art gallery.
I’m unclear of your process and media in this piece, which has a decidedly digitized feel. Despite the intensely saturated color and pixilation, it evokes a humanistic response with the reaching hands. A glow seems to emanate from the yellow contour of the figure, charging the pictures red “static”. I really enjoy the color gradation in the background space, which fluctuates with complementary pinpoints of green. The spoke wheel shape is also a primitive counterpoint to the smooth stylization of the overall image, and so I’m wondering if there is a commentary about technology? I become even more intrigued and perplexed when I scroll through the other works you’ve posted, and stop at 7 and 8. The large delineated masses of grey matter are arresting against the black white fields. They act as a resonant sound against the blank white silence. I particularly like that these pieces hold the heavy visual weight of the mass at the top- precariously balancing on their smaller sides at the bottom. These works seem to emit a gravitational pull, and reference element forces- perhaps at odds with a technological approach. From a purely aesthetic rather than conceptual viewpoint, these works are economic and quite elegant.
