In this period of restrictions we still make Art.
The book “Primary Symbols” was created during the 2021 summer coronavirus restrictions. As lens-based Art, the photographs are designs isolated from settings or background scenes. It s a homage to Contemporary Art, Pop Art, and Minimalism at its core. It is a reduction of imagery to simplistic design that engage concepts of perception, interpretation, and representation, the ordinary, cultural iconography, and elements of Zen and Asian Art.
These isolated images are a result of the coronavirus pandemic restrictions that still affect travel, interaction with people, and isolation. Ravarour cut handmade stencils to photograph light. More of the photographs can be seen through the printer’s “Preview” icon through the bookstore at http://www.drkrm.com.
