Spread # 97- That’s Just The Way It Is June 12, 2010Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
So a couple of days ago I went to see my friend Christina, ‘the photographer’. She was working on something new and was showing it to me. Now I always admire her ‘ways’. She strongly chooses her subjects, intently, and attentively. Once the choice is made, that’s it, a click, and it’s there, magnificent, suggestive, evocative, and mysterious. Her ‘story telling’ is superb, revealing and concealing information, conveying nonverbal intriguing messages and strong visual statements. This time, beyond the admiration I usually feel when looking at her images, I took something from her, the brilliant concept of unprocessed art. Now ‘mixed-media’ is my middle name, layering, building pages, manipulating, recycling, reworking, and processing images, that’s what I do best, and did a lot of it lately, so it’s not that simple. But here and today, inspired by Christina, I tempted to do just that, unprocessed art, make a choice, and let it be. Direct art, simple, sharp, unforced, how refreshing. Christina, I cannot wait to see your stunning images all blown up.
