And! I'm penniless!
Title of this photography project is ironic.I’m hugely influenced by dadaism and neo-dadaism. In this photography project, I explore a peculiar combination of photography, painting & collage. I create three dimensional collages with found objects, food and cheaply printed old paintings. I turn pre-existing works of art into Duchampian ready mades and take photographs of them. I use strong shadows,layering, crumpling and folding effects to give a three dimensional sense in the final work. I reduce the details and forms of painting by covering objects, food. Copies of old masters paintings initially evoke viewers memory. By using unexpected juxtapositions of objects, I try to create ambiguity and pull viewers attention deeper to my photographs. In many ways, I examine new type of still life.
