So these are a couple of photos I did in college: I had built a box in proportion to the 35mm photo frame, covered it in black velvet, had a backlit white background and shot Joanne wearing a black leotard in various positions in it. I thought, actually, I still think they are pretty cool. Anyway, a few years ago I was thinking about them and decided it would be fun to apply the idea to painting. And so the portraits in a box was born.
I am visual artist, I do not consider myself a writer. But I hope I can share a bit about my work and why I do what I do. I just had a thought about what I need to start with, and that is some work I did when I was in college. I need to find it to scan in a couple of images. Hopefully tomorrow.
