On photography -"To speak technically photography is the art of writing with light. But if I want to think about it more philosophically, I can say that photography is the art of writing with time. When you capture an image you capture not only a piece of space, you also capture a piece of time. So you have this piece of specific time in your square or rectangle. In that sense I find that photography has more to do with time than with light. - Gerardo Suter
VANITAS Artist James Hopkins created skulls out of different household items he arranged on several bookshelves. His series entitled ‘Vanitas’ is quite a clever, modern take on this still life genre. ‘Vanitas’ can be defined as a type of symbolic art, often including symbols like skulls, rotten fruit, hourglasses, and other items related to the brevity of life and the certainty of death.
(People) "lets say that to tear a painting is the kill the person trapped inside it. what if they could reach out and tear the painting themselves to be lost forever?" - I think this is an interesting concept to have of what a piece represents.
