COLOR ZEN QUAD
COLOR ZEN QUAD is a sub series in the larger COLOR ZEN series, compositions based on my obsession with photographing the TV screen on analog film. COLOR ZEN QUAD is a set of four compositions created and designed to be displayed together as a quadtych. CZQ explores some of the same themes as the figurative pieces in COLOR ZEN 18-24, but with a less overt emphasis on subjects and a more deliberate nod to pure design aesthetics and electric color. They are meant to be technicolor collages making new, imperfect, analog screens.
The images in these compositions are close-up photos of the TV screen. The macro photos capture the scan lines, bright pulsating colors, and outlines of things familiar and not. These photos are cut into squares, then rearranged into mega-squares, and cut again with circles. The pieces are like TV programming, interchangeable with slight differences.
