Winner! My assemblage piece, landscape + memory, won second place in Visual Art Exchange's Scope 2017, a juried exhibition of Southern landscapes! There's an iPhone in the loaf pan looping a video of me pouring water in a stream. Also a bundle of Fuji instax photos on the bottom left of the piece.
Out with my vintage polaroid camera and expired impossible film last weekend, I found magic. Exploring along the Eno River (Hillsborough, NC), we discovered this fairy castle made of sticks. I never tire of Patrick Dougherty's stickwork structures. I love this image! Soft. Irregular. Dreamy. Imperfect. Beautiful. The little white anemone-looking film spasm on the bottom right is the cherry on top.
Polaroid One 600 camera (one of their later models) and expired Impossible Project Instant B&W 600 film. If you're interested in shooting polaroids, Dan Finnen has some excellent info on his site.
Heavy fog. Heavy thoughts.
We have had the loveliest foggy mornings around here (Raleigh, North Carolina) lately. My husband and I have been lucky and were able to catch a bit of the foggy bliss before work yesterday and today. This photo is from a field just down from our house. What a wonderful start to the day.
So thrilled that my piece "we are like flies stuck in honey" was juried in to the Visual Art Exchange's Image Exhibition. Juried by Edna Cardinale, Director of the photography-focused Julie Saul Gallery.
we are like flies stuck in honey is 9 fuji instax photographs, and not shown in the photo above, taped directly to the wall with torn masking tape. For me it's about all the beautiful things in life that are fleeting and maybe they are more precious because of it.
