ANTHONY CURTIS: LIMINAL

The works in the Liminal series continue my exploration of reductionism and objectivity in Photomedia art. The images are very much experimental in nature and rely on the powers of serendipity in their production.

From Tuesday 24 May 2011 to Saturday 11 June 2011

I create a set of technical and physical parameters, within which the process of creation can occur. Out of this system arise non-representational images that have no concrete referent, narrative or subject.

The subject is the images themselves; the viewer is therefore able to project their imagination onto the works – uninterrupted by a didactic representational narrative.

Luminograms:
A luminogram is the resulting image caused by exposing the photosensitive medium to light without the intervention of an object. The light is modulated by varying the intensity through distance from the photosensitive surface, power of the light source, or by the use of filters or gels or motion of the light.
