Art Description

Photography: Photo, Color, Digital, Giglee on Paper.

'Lost America' examines a quiet stillness in a forgotten landscape that is, in a sense: ‘on-pause’.

Backwater towns and rural corners are juxtaposed with the ambiguity of detached suburbia. Places appear frozen in time, their inhabitants absent or long since departed.

Ardently stagnant in their appearance, the images aim to unlock a moment of reflective contemplation and instil a melancholic feeling of familiarity.

One might not notice or acknowledge these spaces, especially when viewed within the vast stretch of America’s panorama. Yet, when framed as a single vignette, the places can appear to echo a moment of mournful reverie. Or, for some, they might behold an alluringly sombre, everlasting impression.

A beautifully detailed, giclee print on uncoated, 100% cotton museum grade Fine Art archival paper. The paper is specially chosen for its qualities that help enhance the idiosyncratic nature of the image. Each image is colour tested and handmade to order.
