I DON’T PAINT OR DRAW BUT I MAKE ART

THIS EXHIBITION IN THE GALLERY SPACE (OEuVRE) IS AN EXPLORATION IN MY PERSONAL AESTHETIC AND APPROACH TO THE MEDIUMS OF PHOTOGRAPHY AND GRAPHIC DESIGN. AS THE ART DIRECTOR FOR MY DJ COLLECTIVE (FREEFORMATCREW.COM) I HAVE HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO WORK AT BEING BETTER AT STILL WORKS AND TO MANIPULATE MOVEMENT AND THOUGHT. I CONSIDER MYSELF A CONTEMPORARY AND A FINE ARTIST, NOT AN ACTUAL PHOTOGRAPHER OR AN ACTUAL DESIGNER. OFTEN I GET ASKED BY ACTUAL PHOTOGRAPHERS “WHAT ARE YOU POINTING THE CAMERA AT?” AND THAT’S BECAUSE OF THE AMOUNT OF SPACE I ALLOW IN PICTURES AND OTHER OBJECTS I WANT TO SURROUND THE SUBJECT WITH. OTHER TIMES I’M VERY STRICT AND TO THE POINT, BUT IN BOTH INSTANCES, I WANT GET THE SAME MESSAGE ACROSS. THAT MESSAGE IS TO LOOK AT WHAT IS ACTUAL GOING ON AND OBSERVE WITH AN OPEN MIND. JACKSON POLLACK AND WARHOL ARE TWO SCHOOLS OF THOUGHT I WANT TO PROJECT IN MY WORK. SIMPLICITY, CLEANLINESS, MINIMALISM, BUT BUSY AND ACTIVE. MUCH LIKE OUR EVERYDAY LIVES THAT HAS DISTRACTIONS IN IT, THE NATURE OF OUR LIVING IS STILL VERY PURE AND REAL BUT ALSO CLEAR, EVEN IF IT ISN’T TO US. THE SUBJECT MATTER IN THESE STILLS RANGE FROM MY AFFINITY FOR POP CULTURE, BASKETBALL, MUSIC, OBJECTS, AND ANIMALS, TO FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES.
