Reasons


Continuing with the theme of integrating photography into art and art into photography, Reasons is another artwork of mine included in Pam Carriker's new book, Art at the Speed of Life. This mixed-media piece includes an original photograph printed out as a transparency.

Reasons

Reasons is one in a series of three related pieces, all using photographic transparencies. The other two pieces might be familiar to you from previous blog posts from last year.

I love the use of photography with mixed media. I think it lifts it into another space all together. There is just so much that can be done with it....
And I have ordered the book...not so patiently awaiting it's arrival!

XXOO~~

these are terrific!
Seth, please educate me, what is a photographic transparency? is it an image copied or printed on a transparency? is it different than what used to be used for 'over head' projectors? (i know, i am dating myself...) or is this something new?

the only thing i've learned about 'transparancies' is making acrylic skins . . .
cheers!

Cool stuff. I love photographs in mixed media too. Sometimes everything comes together just right and the most marvelous stories pop off the page. I've got another photo posted of the disintegration. It's going to freeze tonight, I think!

Such a unique and different series of yours Seth! The blues are wonderful and love the asian motifs and use of the postage stamps. The words, backgrounds and patterns in your designs are super- all put a big smile on my face!
