From the Artist:
Welcome to “Badass Pix with a Cheap-Ass Camera,” the road show!
What to expect: a range of genres, aesthetics, and philosophies way outside traditional photography. I identify as an “Art Photographer.” I like messing with lots of subjects and techniques, so the works won’t be identified immediately as “Annie Macks.” Boooring! I avoid a signature style or subject matter. So, I guess the common denominator is just me and my camera, wandering the world in serendipity and escaping near-disasters.
My current passions are found abstracts, and electronic collage.
These abstracts are mostly captures of non-representational images, to encourage the viewers to focus their own lenses and respond from personal sensibilities and life experiences. I try for general or ambiguous titles to allow the audience freedom to appreciate without my interference. But occasionally a little framing is helpful (i.e., an entire catalog of “Untitled” would be hard to keep track of).
The collages are computer-generated, thus without the hands-on texture of a rip/chop/and glue piece, but faithful to the principles of intentional deconstruction and disruptions of context. My messages are sometimes pulled from the headlines or inspired by humorous/original treatment of tropes or classic stories. Like physical collage, these specimens develop organically and sometimes run away or become quite demanding as I scramble to catch up.
All of it is great fun. May you find enjoyment therein.
