CLEA CHRISTAKOS-GEE

the mess, the puzzle, the space, the new, the flatness, the spark, the negative, the coincidence, the texture, the edges, the round, the blob, the form, the thought, the refusal, the collection, the collide, the attention, the cut, the snip, the clipping, the sprinkle, the syntax, the touch, the process, the resolution, the fit.


Whenever I read a fashion magazine I always hold a pair of scissors. I look to dissect them, to uncover my attraction to the loaded details of every image made to sell something. When I cut the printed photographs in half, rip around their edges, and subtract their original context they are forced to interact and reveal in new layered compositions.
