REAPER, 2017

Inkjet prints on stainless steel panels. 14"x17".

The series REAPER represents an array of objects and raw material arranged on a flat surface and photographed from above. The items selected for each composition represent contrasting qualities of physical texture and cultural value, which are pushed into the abstract realm as the photographic process blurs their defined boundaries and flattens their tactility. Ideas of value shift as the cheap poses for luxury and the natural becomes grotesque.
