Edge photographs (2017-2019)
“The figure is nothing unless you twist it around like a strange miracle.” - Willem de Kooning
In my early work, I worked with mud and I would shape and transform figures to ideas from my imagination and photograph them. Now I transform figures and places using homemade lenses. My technique is manually optical and it enables me to compose in a manner that is closer to a painter’s process where my imagination and emotion shape what I see.
Distorted glass and the edges of glass that are shown in my photographs are like breaks away from reality to me. I like that I can have some recognizable descriptions in my photographs and some that can be very abstract. Colors, textures and lines become expressive of formal ideas in my head or emotional responses to a person or place. − Seth David Rubin
