  • 79 Moons From Flickr 51 Visible
    20x200.com
    Suns From Flickr is a project I started in 2006 when, looking for "the most photographed" subject, I found 541,795 photographs of sunsets searching "sunset" on the photo-sharing website Flickr. At the time that seemed like a lot; today there are more than 4,786,139 hits for "sunset" on Flickr. I think it's peculiar that the sun—the quintessential life-giver, constant in our lives, symbol of enlightenment, spirituality, eternity, all things unreachable and ephemeral, omnipotent provider of optimism and vitamin D...and so ubiquitously photographed—is now subsumed to the internet, the most virtual of spaces—equally infinite, but within a closed digital circuit. For this Aperture / 20x200 project, I combined multiple "sunset" and "moonrise" photographs found on Flickr and superimposed them, respectively, in Photoshop. Each photograph is visible to a greater or lesser degree depending on the amount of opacity I give each—the titles are an indication of this: 87 Suns From Flickr - 29 Visible, and 79 Moons From Flickr - 51 Visible. The resulting aesthetic seems rooted in a history of abstract visual form (from Klee and Kandinski to Star Trek and blacklight posters), where the images move away from a reality we know towards an abstraction of that reality based on fiction and psychedelic cosmic fantasy. As reflection of the ever increasing use of web-based photo communities, my collating of found sunset and moonrise pictures results in images that are inherently reflexive of the pre-scripted collective content found there.
  • Artist Amy Eisenfeld Genser's Magnificent Mixed Media Underwater Scenes Anne of Carversville
    More info
    Connecticut-based artist Amy Eisenfeld Genser is inspired by underwater scenes. Using rolls of paper and acrylic on canvas, Eisenfeld Genser creates mixed media art that is reflective of the stony corals andd polyps that one would typically see while scuba diving near a coral reef. The artist explains in more detail: "The sources of my work are textures, patterns, and grids. I look for forms that can be repeated to create a pattern when they are joined. My work tries to capture the essence of an experience or an image I have seen." She is fascinated by the flow of water, the shape of beehives, and the organic irregularity of plants, flowers, rock formations, barnacles, moss, and seaweed. Her pieces bring to mind aerial landscape views, satellite imagery, and biological cellular processes. A side view of each piece provides a three dimensional depth to an already tactile painting. Her mixed media works are so greatly detailed, viewers are inspired to reach out and touch the rounded shapes created from spirals of recycled paper, or the textures that are created from a smattering of acrylic across the canvas.
