Call for art: Interiors can mean various things to different people. It can be a representational viewpoint from inside a home, workplace, studio or café - often it can have a nostalgic sensibility or evoke a feeling of security. A person might identify with a place of worship or even a forest, to express their internal self. Internalized feelings and emotions may resonate within an interior.
I'm revisiting this series of work inspired by Allen Ginsberg's A Supermarket in California by making transfers and emulsion lifts that mimic outdated Polaroid processes.
Ginsberg explains: The penumbras, a word meaning “shroud” or “partial illumination,” are meant to designate the secrets that such displays of nature …hide. Photography allows us to see mysterious internal worlds—the sensual concavities of a peach or red pepper.
