Forrest Old, Owner, Red Filter Gallery quotes from the artist: “This series is inspired by my poem ‘Meet Me in My Dreams”. The images are created using wet plate collodion. I scan and enlarge them to enhance the organic qualities of the medium. The work speaks to family, memory, and the ethereal passage of time.
The setting for many of the images is a fairytale landscape. My use of the young people celebrates the universal feeling of limitless potential that most people experience in their youth. The ghostlike figures are reflections of the later years when beauty and youth begin to fade. They suggest the feeling that one is beginning to disappear and yet still present and interacting in the scene.”
