- The Sky Was Blue - a photographic project
The ever-changing sky has inspired me to create a personal project meant to trace or imply my varying states of mind. I decided to associate skies that are overcast, dreary, bright or blue, with frames of mind and oscillating moods. My creative intention in this project is to visually express my ideas or feelings regarding the constant state of impermanence in which we live.
To give emphasis to fleeting states of being, I images are printed on what seems to be fragile, gampi paper. Japanese gampi is tissue thin paper made from plant fibers and is considered to be a noble fiber noted for its richness and strength. To further support or represent transitory states of being, I allow the thin tissue-like paper to crinkle or fold, I then present each image floating in a shadow box. My intention is to create artwork that focuses on reductive color palettes, expressing the ephemeral.
