Poetic Abstractions

The pandemic of COVID-19 has forced the world to a halt.  Yet is a crazy new world.  A world where we stay in.  Events are cancelled and we have no where to go. Yet, despite the entire economy frozen in time, time in essence continues moving forward.  Days continue to pass us by.  Clocks continue ticking reminding us that time continues to move forward.   Yet we remain frozen.  Waiting.  This series, is intended to capture the passage of time.  Using whatever I had in my storage closet, I locked myself away and played with my camera.  Pushing the boundaries of what I thought was possible.  Movements are intentionally blurred to emphasize the passage of time as the subject moves in front of the camera, focusing on abstraction, form, colour, and contrast.  Negative space “isolates” the lone, luminous subject  and forces the viewer to notice the abstractions.
