COLOR ZEN 18-25

 

 

COLOR ZEN DESIRE

COLOR ZEN DESIRE is a sub-series within a larger body of work titled COLOR ZEN, which documents my ongoing obsession with photographing and recontextualizing TV and video images with analog film. Numbers 18-25 in the series are an homage to the electricity of manipulated desire - a tableaux of the fragmented, plastic depictions of beauty and desire.

These Color Zen compositions envelop and caress the eye with luminous, neon color and the glow of artificially-lit skin. They are reconstructed documents of disjointed and overlapping memories; fragments of other artists attempts to harness sexuality and beauty through a photograph or motion picture. These new film compositions - double-exposed pieces of film, patched together in the square frame not dissimilar to that of social media - highlight the fleeting, and ultimately imaginary, sensation of fulfillment.
