COLOR ZEN DESIRE

 

 

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. The large-scale prints in Color Zen Desire attempt to translate the electricity of manipulated desire - a tableaux of the fragmented, plastic depictions of sexuality we are marketed throughout our lives.

Just like that marketing, the Color Zen compositions envelop and caress the eye with luminous, neon color and the glow of artificially-lit skin. They are reconstructed snapshots of disjointed and overlapping memories, fragments of a lifetime of programming recomposed to highlight the fleeting, and ultimately imaginary, sensation of fulfillment.
