The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
Making collages and paintings turned into making 3 dimensional collages or miniature stage set-ups.
Then I photograph the set-up. The situation looks just real enough.
I use oil paintings for the backdrops (my paintings, my father’s, or thrift shop paintings).
I arrange objects in front of the painting using lady head vases (antique ceramic heads) and my farm animals.
Afterwards, I decide what colors and attitudes are needed and I photoshop my body into the scene.
