[...Your pictures are compelling. I am particularly drawn to "Women" - the repetition of the simulated human form is quite compelling, and I'm drawn to the positioning of the arms and legs in somewhat graceful placements. The wrongly turned hand in the foreground is especially striking. This is a fine photograph. I'm also drawn to the rather stark contrast and overall luminosity of "Brooklyn". the textures of the subject are wonderful. Your remaining pictures feature a significant amount of manipulation and post-production which alters the color and contrast." Look at the sky, baby" and "Fortune Cookies", e.g., are particularly strong.
I enjoy how the "Fortune Cookies" absolutely fill the entirety of the picture frame, and how the transparent quality of the cellophane begins to resemble creatures - crustaceans perhaps. In "Look at the sky, baby", the heightened sense of one-point perspective is quite appealing and emphasizes the implied spatial depth of the photograph. It is the referenced images which most clearly show an overall attentiveness to subject concerns and compositional construction. Your artistic voice is becoming evident. I've enjoyed viewing your work...
[...Needless to say, there is a mystery about you and your work. It does not seem to have a starting point or end...it just is. There is a lot of information that exists that I do not have like the music and the visual experience of the different media. What I am left with is a surreal world. There is the invitation to step into some of these vignettes and there are offerings of objects that I might experience when I step inside. It is clear that the inversion of color and a look of translucency is the guiding language here. Most objects are recognizable: the "Fortune cookies", the "Jellyfish", "Lemon" and the figures both in mannequin form and poster. This helps me enter this space. It is not so abstract, but more like a hallucinatory experience. In light of this and a bit ironically, I like “Brooklyn”. It is a little more "believable" in its color, yet it has a deeper abstraction. It floats in space with familiar language, but it lacks purpose. This is what I like about it. Many of the other objects and spaces are encoded with function. “We are connected IV” “Fortune Cookies” and “Jellyfish” are very close to being successful at this...they are recognizable, but because of the abstract cast you have placed on them, they seem to be transforming into something else completely. Although I like the installation of mannequins and the poster, they feel like they are something different. Of course, being in b/w conveys that right away and they are also less abstracted than the rest.
Nice, but perhaps belonging to another tribe.
I enjoyed the mysterious story you are and I hope we have the chance to see more as it develops...]
