Artist Statement: Night Amalgam" combines the day's liminal times and shows them concurrently existing. Day, dusk, and night are combined in new and sometimes unsettling ways.
Cubist's paintings show a single landscape from different perspectives at the same time. In “Night Amalgam,” I show a single urban landscape from same perspective at different times.
All work is done on film and in camera without digital creation or manipulation. Some of these images have taken up to three days to create.
Creating these images in camera on film allows me to capture the energy of change while maintaining a grounding in reality. I like to print large to enhance the impact of the colors. The intriguing details of the interactions between colors draw one into an intimate distance to explore. To me, it is important that the images in this series impact the viewer both from across the room as well as under very close inspection.
