The framework of “Reality & Imagination_Silhouette and Shadow of Life” and “Silhouette and Shadow of Life Too” is a way of seeing driven by a frame of mind at the service of an idea.
Let me to speak a bit in general about the framework of “Reality & Imagination_Silhouette and Shadow of Life” and “Silhouette and Shadow of Life Too”.
My process there is a way of seeing driven by a frame of mind at the service of an idea. What I mean exactly is, I chose to accept the upside down world to being as important as if not more so than the right-side up world (frame of mind) as a context within which to explore the interaction that takes place between the culture of the host country and the culture of the immigrant living permanently abroad (idea), while I make use of the movement/motion of the tide with the sand to combine that frame of mind with that idea to tease life from the combination (way of seeing). Because of the frame of mind in use, the images created pull the viewer into a world that seems instantaneously both familiar and unfamiliar. The essence of creating that world is not only in the physical aspect of making the image, but even more so, in the frame of mind that permits me to find the suitable environment to interplay the combined elements.
