Fugitive Flora

Fugitive Food & Flora

This is new work in progress.  These images are drawn from items removed from my compost bin then photographed on a stark white background. I see this as an extension of my ongoing Evanescence Series where I'm making still life images out of the chaos and beauty of the decaying materials in my compost bin.  Here however I'm stripping things down to very minimal imagery. Stark isolation and hard contrasts bringing the notion of that beauty and decay into the realm of abstract portraiture.  More to come on this project.  5/2017 Steven J Duede
