Memory Is Fleeting Memories Persist
Photograph - Mixed Media
Memory is fleeting. Memories persist. A contemplation of dreams and memories. Those we wish to remember often escape us. Those we wish to forget often persist. I have a second version of this Mixed Media photograph online here as well with a mat around it which you can purchase in place of a mat, or which will make a canvas or metal print look as though it is framed.
This is the third iteration of this concept piece. The wooden hand is one of the first studio shots I did as I learned to use strobes back in 2008. The bamboo is also from that timeframe. I actually used an early mixed media textured piece I did that I've sold here three times now, and blended it with other textures from photos of various walls and other surfaces I've taken over the years. The clock began life as a photo from the Hallgrimskirkja Cathedral in Reykjavik Iceland back in 2011. The butterflies are various cutouts of photos of a Viceroy butterfly I took in a field in Dutchess County New York that same summer.The first attempt at this concept was a few months ago, but I wasn't happy with it so left it on the back burner. I then heard about a dreams competition and decided to give it another go, adding new images and trying various compositions until I felt I was telling the story, put it up here than took it down and decided to work on it some more. I think the third time was the charm. I like the fact that it contains photos taken over the past six years since it deals with memory as well as my dreams for my photography and life in general. I'm sketching out concepts to add more to this series. There are so many possibilities.
