Seeing many of the images on the lens culture website helped kick start my creative process. The works of Deborah Oropallo's series GUISE use famous paintings of men from the 17th and 18th centuries layered with photos of women in fetish costumes. Laurence Demaison's series "Moving performances,
still photographs" uses long exposures and moving subjects, showing trails of light hands against a dark body. Joan Fontecuberta created animal mash ups before they flooded the internet. For me these three artists' creations combine in my head to form a loose idea of where I want to try to take the vision and reality project. I am thinking about portraits, perhaps self portraits, layering with appropriated images - either comic book art (superheroes, villains, monsters, and creatures) or images from video games or images of animals. Perhaps in a way which reveals the inner thoughts or self perceptions of the subjects. The ideas are still bouncing around in my head.
