The Odd One Out

I really like this one. It was the odd one out. One random print I had. I’ve been doing a lot of my work in triptychs for awhile. Every now and then I have an extra. I typically never show them for some reason. I thought this one should be shown.

This has been a really fun series to make. I’ll be posting more in the next couple of days. I didn’t really care for these 3 at first. They grew on me. What you can’t really see with these scans is that those grey lines are actually metallic silver.

I took some Polaroids at this abandoned place in Baltimore last year.  The Old Pemco factory. I had some inkjet prints made of them. Never did anything with them until tonight. Collage makes everything better. I used some leftover Xerox’s I had laying around.

these are some scans of 4x6 prints of photos I took on a urbex trip. I love graffiti. It’s so easy to photograph. I took these on 35mm film and collaged the text I found in magazines on the prints. Playing with text is by far one of my favorite things to do.

I had a lot of fun making these. I had these prints of my friend Shawn I didn’t know what to do with.  I recently watched a documentary on Francis Bacon. I love his work. I painted on the photos to try and catch his style. Some are better than others but happy with the results. 

Mistakes

Don’t you love when an accident becomes something beautiful. I try mixing chance into everything I work on in some way. I thought my Polaroid camera was out of film and poof... this photo was born. 

An Ode to Anni Albers

I Love Anni Albers work. These are collages I made inspired by her. I did a couple of these photo print collages of artists that inspire me. I’ll be posting some more and making more in the future.  

An Ode to Josef Albers

These are some collages I made based on the work of Josef Albers. I collaged the colored paper on prints of 35mm film photos I shot a couple of years ago in Ellicott City. A place nicknamed “Creepy Collage”. Still a great place to go take photos. I go at least once every year.
