There are conversations that I seem to have over and over again with people viewing my In the Style of . . . series. They generally start with the person doing a double take in the gallery after looking at one of the pieces and then at me, and making the connection.
Sometimes this is said as a revelation, sometimes a question, but often with awe.
This usually turns into an explanation of the series, and what it involves in terms of research and process. There are usually a few questions and sometimes they will even suggest an artist for my list. The most common questions I get are when I explain that all of the pieces are photography based. People seem to have the biggest problem with this idea. I usually save images of my process and have made several stop motion type videos of different pieces showing the answers to questions like “how did you do that” or “that started from a photography?”and I thought I would post a couple of them for you to see.
