I promised some original work, and here it is!
This set takes images of everyday objects and situations and depicts them in an irrational way, the way a child might imagine them to be when afraid. I wanted to take some of the typical childhood fears — under the bed, in the closet, those hidey corners in the kitchen — and explore what we might see if those fears were true. By playing with shadows and placing objects where they do not belong, I have attempted to capture those moments of seeing something out of the corner of your eye, something that startles. In our day to day, when we look again there is not a shadow, no hand reaching out to grab us, but in the moment we react to our mistaken sight. My goal was to capture these monsters that might have been.
I had a lot of fun creating these images and I hope you enjoy them. Stay tuned this week for FPF and a super awesome cupcake recipe!
As always, thanks for reading and feel free to comment and tell me what you think. Constructive criticism is an artist’s best friend!
