PORTRAIT

SHORT LIST

Statement

Hart Land

Vacant houses tend to have some belongings left behind, and I visualize who once inhabited the place based on such items.
I painted these objects gray and applied light to them using RGB filters.
While in some sense, this is an act of illuminating the past, we see these vistas from the vantage point of the present, so this is by no means an act of shining a light on the past itself.

Jury selection

The sight seen when rubble, materialized in a flattened form, once again has a certain amount of light shone upon it. An ambitious piece, that forcefully projects to the viewer what is being portrayed.
