Payphones on Film Zine:
I am happy to announce that I am self-publishing a zine of ten works from my Payphones on Film series. The first edition of this booklet is limited to 50 hand-numbered copies, and you may order your copy here:
You can see my work in the ArtFields 2019 Juried Exhibition in Lake City, SC between April 26 and May 4, 2019. If you’re visiting ArtFields, you can see my work in the TRAX Visual Arts Center at 122 Sauls Street.
In this ongoing body of work, my approach to depicting subjects or scenes is not reaching for concrete images of them, but rather haphazardly finding fragmented, blurred, and otherwise distorted depictions.
In these Relics, sourcing my imagery from arcane and forgotten video cassettes is not unlike sifting through the genuine memories of ones' self or another. The subject is present, and one can make it out if they attempt, but it is as if the retrieval of these memories causes information loss, which amplifies their aesthetic and atmospheric presence.
