It is interesting to me how morose this body of work is getting to be, or can be interpreted. Because of the relatively long exposures, moving cars and people are excluded from each photo. I am really much more of a portrait photographer than a landscape one, so this feels rather strange to me. Architectural photographers have taken advantage of this and often used long exposures in busy cities to show buildings and streets devoid of people and traffic.
While it is to late to get my work into this year’s AIPAD photography show, I am working hard on getting in next year. One of the things I am missing is a good artist’s statement. After much mental anguish working on it, I found the artybollocks generator , and was able to come up with a splendid statement that should please even the most dyed in the wool post-modern gallerist or curator.
Christian’s Artist Statement
My work explores the relationship between acquired synesthesia and romance tourism.
With influences as diverse as Wittgenstein and Roy Lichtenstein, new insights are distilled from both constructed and discovered discourse.
Ever since I was a pre-adolescent I have been fascinated by the endless oscillation of the moment. What starts out as undefined soon becomes finessed into a hegemony of power, leaving only a sense of failing and the unlikelihood of a new beginning.
As wavering derivatives become undefined through frantic and academic practice, the viewer is left with a new agenda of the edges of our era.
