POLAROID AS A MEDIUM
I have always felt a sense of story and other worldliness in my art. I have an impressionistic and classical, perhaps slightly fantastic, orientation. I enjoy visually enhancing an image or an idea, expanding our ways of seeing or thinking. My goal would be to offer a heightened sense of beauty and an increased awareness of elemental connectedness, as things merge with other things and lines do not separate so much as connect. This applies to the actual physical representation of the images as well as to the ideas and memories revealed that connect us to our past and present.
Yes! There is a company called ‘the Impossible Project’ that is currently recreating the Polaroid films. So I have access to their new films to continue working in my medium.
