Shades of Grey #05
Artwork ID: MICSHA00242
This series reveals a connection and relationship with the environment at a very real and visceral level. Devoid of colour and any tangible content these images hover around the photographic medium of 18% grey. This is the mid-grey, an average reflectance by which light meters and photographic standards are measured – a reference, a constant, a universal datum. A distillation of all that can or has been photographed.
They sit on the cusp of nothingness, yet their very emptiness draws you in and allows you to see more and contemplate infinite possibilities.
A soothing and meditative response to today’s culture of rapid fire disposable imagery.
