Untitled #7, 2010
from the series Lines, Squares, Circles
The pieces from the series Lines, Squares, Circles explore the ways in which we view and respond to vernacular photography. I am essentially taking the common photo tradition and throwing it into abstraction, creating these optical dynamic forms through the tools and fundamentals of early constructivism. The structure and design of the pieces were inspired by the early 1920’s constructivist paintings by El Lissitzky. The series questions the way in which we respond to the constructed formalist pieces, and whether it changes the way we see the precious objects of sentiment. Or do the appropriated images give the formal piece a profound new meaning?
The work has also become a statement on the evolution and treatment of these photographs in our society today, and how they now exist as a product of profit and mass consumerism. The original vintage source images were sold to me through an online vendor, and it seems as though being up for sale is the only place they fit in a modern context. Although I have no idea who or where these images originated from, I am giving them a new home in an attempt to honour them as objects that we at times take for granted.
The artist has very generously created this work as a special limited edition exclusively for EYE BUY ART.
