About The Piece
‘Untitled’ is 16″x 20″ photograph
Through this ongoing project, I explore the characteristics of expired SX-70 and Fujifilm wide instant film by experimenting with movement, changes in temperature, and the dependency of the film itself. Inspired by the ways of Lucas Samaras’ Polaroid “Photo-Transformations” (1973), I produce forcible movement of the ink as the exposure of the developing photograph progresses. In addition to shifting the ink in the image, some images have been dissected and manually altered by the addition of glue and paint before piecing the images back to their seemingly original status. The abstractions resulted from my process are aimed to stimulate viewers’ senses and curiosity. I hope viewers can explore their imagination while configuring each image as I have while producing them.
ARTIST: KRISTEN BROWN
When I create art, I engage in methods of material and medium exploration. Drawing, Painting, and Photography all hold equal importance to me when it comes to self-expression. Frequently, these areas are represented through uses of textural emphasis and abstraction to provoke viewer’s curiosity and emotion.
For the time being, I am a student enrolled at RCTC working on my Associates of Fine Arts. My hope is to advance in my college education and continue strengthening my artistic style in varied styles and medias!
