Instagram Art

Recently there was a thieving "artist" who successfully ripped off peoples Instagram photos and sold them as his own for thousands of dollars. I think he's a piece of shit that doesn't have a creative bone in his body, yet still he is rich and famous. While real artists struggle and live modestly, douche-bags like him get away with illegal stealing of other people's art. Hashtag #richardprincesucks

So on that note, I thought I would share some of my Instagram photos that i've taken over the years that I enjoy. As a lower class citizen, if my photos ever got stolen and sold for mucho money, I wouldn't be able to do shit about it...just cry...but that does nothing for my health but give me wrinkles. If I were him I'd donate all that money to an animal rights charity...and I'd buy a road bike. But let's not get off topic, here's some of my instagrammies to look at. :)

Doorways and Windows

In the southwest the land is hot, the air is dry, the horizon is vast and often barren. New Mexico is a large state with very few people. Littered throughout this desert wasteland you can easily find abandoned houses or buildings.

Over the years (hunting for them with an old friend) I have found a few unique and decaying homesteads. There is an eerie yet exciting feeling when you finding these locations. They have a quiet...human presence...still lurking inside the walls...peaking through the windows and doorways. I like to call it human imprinting: When a place is abandoned and left ghosted by the leftover presence of its inhabitants. The abandoned place has it's own personality...it becomes like a person by being left alone. It grows old, it get's lonely, and it begins to die. I have a habit of humanizing the inanimate, as you can see. But I find the decay beautiful.

In my Doorways and Windows set I display the passageways into these abandoned spaces as they sit in silence...waiting for something.

In my Spectral and Impasse projects I attempt to accentuate the presence of human imprinting within these spaces. In Spectral the figures are more ghost-like where as in Impasse, they are solid human forms interacting with the spaces.
