The method of juxtaposing different imagery, as I do in lots of paintings, is a means to discuss juxtaposition itself in relation to human nature. The Imagery used is always very personal, but not always my own photography. In overlaying an image i see related to the previous one, i visualize a method the brain is using in daily life.
Two of the four photos used were made on a trip to the Musée de Beaux Arts in Lyon. The Statue represents Perseus and Andromeda. The background is a detail of a large painting at the same floor of said museum. The other two photos I used are porn.
The topics of expectations, complex relationships, subejctivity and other human conditions are all discussed with the viewer in an intimate struggle to apply their filter to my "double filter" imagery. The still decernable surroundings and characters leand a hand into the subject and as the viewer follows into the overlapping subjects core is treated to a loving but
chaotic center. The outer parts of the image are a thesis of "good", then there's a
critical break area and finally a "bad" center, formed by a synthesis of the
two via common ground.
