The work I have created is a discovery of form and color, rather than concept. Moving away from anything that deems recognizable, I try to take household objects and transform them into something new. Using just one light, I am able to take a simple object and idolize it, that is, make it evoke a greater feeling or a thought process different from what one would expect. The use of light in my work is really important for it creates the mood in all of the pieces. Colors, shadows, and other visual elements are also of great importance in my work and accordingly, the process is a very important step into to making these pieces as well. Abstract paintings are the inspiration for this series, and I have discovered that when making this work, my thought process is more of a painter rather than a photographer.
With the images I create, I hope to generate thoughts in the viewer’s mind, whether it leads to an emotion, memory, or any other kind of stimulating idea. These photographs are meant to be seen, rather than analyzed, for they celebrate the ideals of abstraction, more so than any of my previous work.
