After many angering Force Close issues on my Android, I managed to create As we fade. This small series was done using my tablet’s camera to take self portraits where I felt vulnerable while being physically covered.
The post-process was done little by little. To keep myself sane, I worked whenever I had the patience to get an error on my tablet. An annoying error that would force me to start it all over again! I was using an old version of the Pixlr app.
During this constricted process I remembered how easy it could’ve been to create each image in Photoshop, but I kept struggling to blend the pixels with my thumb. Faded into everything, melting into an open space of emptiness yet reaching out.
Dug up these from my artwork vault to showcase them on the blog. Some of these appear on the internet for the first time, today!).
I took these back in 2008, inspired by film noir and voyeurism. Thinking of self portraiture as a method for transformation and story telling. Concealed between reflections, glass, smoke or a figure; What you think you know can be misunderstood.
After many hours of work (behind the camera, post processing and designing) I’m proud to announce the launch of Tropical Darkness a Red Bubble exclusive collection!
Psychedelic patterns are formed with photographs I’ve taken of the many juxtaposed moods found in tropical nature. The deep colours of the caribbean now decorate useful paraphernalia such as leggings, scarves and bags. I’m literally obsessed with the final result.
The Full Moon Oracle will gaze upon you and inspire you to seek completion and purification during all your creative endearments.
An exploration of subject distortion by repetition.
A series of photos created with my (old 3.2 pixel) phone.
During the stupor of the morning when the sun rays peek between your eyelashes, dreams fade. A burst of light and colour begins to reign, while the after-taste of your dream remains.
The mood of that interval between dreamland and waking up is translated into paper.
Exploring the spaces that surround me, finding the cracks, capturing the shadows and immersing in the atmospheres is the only thing I really do. There’s beauty in decadence, even if it grows from within.
I’ve continued the observation of spaces in monochrome. Following the Gloomroom series (I and II), I bring you the Gloomhaus collection. Enjoy.
This is part of a photography project I’m working on. I combine make up and photography to create characters based off from sketches.
These photos are from 2013 and there’s still a lot of work left to actually release the whole series but I wanted to share the whole Sadness is Golden set here on my blog.
Open the door and never look back.
Hello October, you are such a busy month every year. Now that days are shorter, I couldn’t help myself but to share pictures that evoke melancholy.
