Slow Sunday here today, spent some time reviewing and editing footage, creating short pieces that carry the hazy recollection of memories. The feeling when you try and recall a moment and all you can find are the shapes and sounds of where you used to be.
I was at my studio last night and I was editing some footage, layering and collaging images together and this sequence really stood out to me. I love how layering a sequence together can really speak to a specific state of mind. Last night i was feeling introspective, and this short piece speaks to that headspace.
Layering images, it’s beautiful thing. A couple of video stills that I inverted and collaged together.
It’s been a busy summer, at work and in my studio. I recently completed a new series based on old letters from my Mom, collaged onto pieces of wood given to me by my Dad. The art feels expressive and biographical, and really came from a place of self-reflection. When you are up close to the piece, you can see that most of the letters date back to 1996, the year I officially left home. My Mother was processing her new life without her son around, and these pieces commemorate that moment.
