Ari Marcopoulos — This Week
Past: January 8 → February 19, 2011
Except for one, the images in the show were all taken in 2010 they present my most recent work.
They are a slow quest for abstraction combined with a straight portrait of a friend.
The Sistine Chapel as a halfpipe. The spiderbite as minor injury a recurring subject in my work.
Most important in my work are the latest photos. I tend to capture things close to me and now also i am most interested in proximity in time. There is still a lag in time because I still work analog so usually a week goes by before i see the images.
The color work in the exhibition were all chosen when I saw them and marked them. These are a selection of images I immediately reacted too when they were returned to me from the lab.
The black and white image present a longing for nature after having moved back to the city the second black and white image is a screenshot, the screen representing the flat image that many people now spend most time with.
