About The Artwork

I’m addicted to the study and mystery of beauty and what it can be. Many of my images mimic painting as well as sculpture, often referencing artists (past and present) who's work has influenced me. Like Serrano, I'm an artist using a camera." I’ve this theory about just how it is that (almost magically) so much great abstraction appears on dumpster walls. It has to do with the energy surrounding destructive/repetitive processes and the objects that collect the material evidence (scraps) of that process randomly over time. Sort of like the floor beneath a painters studio where he works all his canvases. The floor (or dumpster) is always haphazardly collecting the material scraps of the process at hand. It's kind of similar to the process occurring when kids play with paint. They make some remarkably extraordinary art on this subconscious level that is often breathtaking. The product isn't born out of skill or intellectual intervention. The "art" is the random product of an energy system. Then miraculusly it's discovered.

I'm a Boston-based artist working in multiple media and genres including painting, digital work, photography and sculpture. I'm currently working with a Nikon D610 & D810 cameras/lenses as well as HD cell cameras such as the Motorola one hyper 64 MP. My digital manipulations and post-production photographic work, I use a variety of digital tools such as Adobe Photoshop Elements and Irfanview. I'm working increasingly with cell cameras to produce images - especially candid and street photography. Cell phones are so ubiquitous now you can get away with a lot more. People aren't so intimidated by their use even in more intimate locations. I've been using a moto X pure with a powerful 21 MP rear camera and have just upgraded to their new 64 MP rear camera in the Motorola one hyper edition. I've made a good part of my living as an R&D lab technician for high tech firms but have always been a struggling dedicated artist. My strongest influences are Francis Bacon / Cy Twombly / Antony Gormley / Sigmar Polke / Hans Hofmann / William de Kooning / Rauschenberg / Jasper Johns / Thomas Struth just to name a few. I specialize in abstraction and demolition/disaster porn as it has been referred to - as in the ruin porn genre. I'm drawn to the textures, patterns, colors, and chaos - scenes of neglect and detritus as well as street photography and passing strangers. I typically move from pop to grunge seamlessly + everything in between! I'm always testing visual forms and genres. I like to play and experiment. It's actually difficult for me to stay in one place. It all depends on what I'm looking at at any given time and place. I have little interest in popular convention or the addiction to the prejudices of polite society. I'm not especially fond or sympathetic to religious and political dogmas. manuelbranco 02/22/2018 “We plan our lives according to a dream that came to us in our childhood, and we find that life alters our plans. And yet, in the end, from a rare height, we also see that our dream was our fate. It's just that providence had other ideas as to how we would get there. Destiny plans a different route, or turns the dream around, as if it were a riddle, and fulfills the dream in ways we couldn't have expected.” -Ben Okri
