WHAT DELIGHTED EYE & HAND
DID FRAME THIS LOVELY SYMMETRY?
It was art fair time in New York City. I visited the Armory Show 2014 with exhibitions mounted by 210 international galleries, the Scope Art Show with 50 international galleries, and the Art Show [ADAA/Art Dealers Association of America] with 72 galleries. That’s about 332 exhibitions; I must have viewed over 5000 artworks in two days! How does one even begin to absorb so much stuff? One must be selective – but how? I decided to photograph the works in which I could see my reflection. I took about 450 photographs and now I’m revisiting those works in which I saw myself –revisiting them by transforming them into digital collages. In some photos my reflection is vivid and in others I almost disappear.
