Time, its a funny thing, some of us are tied to it, others not. Some of us make time our priority others just tend to go along without no rush or care…. I am a bit of both. But since the dawn of time man has always been somewhat living by time. Before a watch/clock it was always told by the position of the sun. How beautiful, to look to the sun, to mother nature and see what time she decides it to be. Opposed to the mechanism of a ticking man made bit of steel.
Therefore i have decided to do a series on TIME
I have decided to do a candid series, as when people are relaxed their aura, their appearance and their projection of themselves change, sometimes so dramatically. There was a scientific study that when people are given a mirror in which to look at themselves and their brainwaves and muscles were monitored. And the results show that as soon as they were given a mirror their expression and stance changed, even for themselves when no one else was in a room they altered the way they look their appearance, emotional state to see a pleasing reflecting. I find this bizarre as i do not give a rats arse what i look like most of the time.
So with tis tied in i have decided to do CONCEPTUAL MIRROR SERIES and a CANDID series. Which i am also thinking of doing a follow up series of actually UNCANDID with the same people, just to show the difference.
Obviously with any type of series you have to do a BLACK AND WHITE series so that is a given.
WIth regards to my last blog post regarding personal art, and art in general i havent quite nailed what i want to achieve from this series, yet. SO although this is a given series the outcomes and exact photos i have in mind are still a bit fuzzy. Though with putting alot of thought into the ART series and talking about Cezanne yesterday i have decided that i am going to do a ‘take’ on the pieces of art that have heavily influenced me. In the way i fall in love with art, admire the technical precision and complimentary colours, the conscious proportions, the light that has been man made and created but looks as if mother nature has lent a hand. SO i will RE-CREATE the images i have been inspired by, but obviously give it my own twist, which will obviously end up as a dark art piece.
so ART INSPIRED RE-CREATION is another series.
I havent decided how many series i want to do yet but i know they have to be things to take me out of my unusal style.
I have BOKEH
INSECT – not as real animals and insects, this one will have a great conceptual twist.
I was also contemplating submitting a image to dark beauty competition based on ‘secrets’ unfortunately i know the artist’s work who will be judging and its very conceptual fashion based and that is clearly not my style at all. ITs not at if I am not going to enter as i will not win, its the fact i dont like that genre an i know that will be favoured over other genres. So for now i think i will leave it be mulled in my mind.
IF there are any spelling mistakes in this I apologise, i find after writing it, on a white background with black text and the lighting of the computer my eyes literally give up and everyword starts to swirl and basically perform a salsa dance. WHich means I literally cant de-code anything i have written, but i notice all of these mistakes when i publish this work and it appears on a black background. Then only then can i read what i have wrote, thats Irlen syndrome for ya.
