Art/World Triptychs 2016 - 2018
After working with studio environments as a source for found still-lifes, I began to see similar patterns of shifting materiality beyond those spaces – in the exhibition hall and the gallery, but also in private domestic spaces, the chaos of the street, and finally, nature. It seemed to me that the frame of the photograph could level out the differences between these places. On the one hand they show that the process of art is not that rarified, but on the other they show that everyday life can take on artistic qualities. I began by grouping photographs as pairs or as triptychs to emphasize this.
These digital prints are banner-size horizontal triptychs, 24"x 99", images made with a Canon 5D camera, printed on Epson matte roll paper.
