JONATHAN LIPKIN — TRANSLUCENCE OF TIME: OCEAN

 

PROJECT STATEMENT

The ocean is changing, repetitive, and stable. Waves crash steadily onto the beach as the horizon stretches limitlessly before us. This work is the first chapter of a series that examines our relationship with the natural world, silence, and infinity. It explores our perception of the sea, and how vision is expressed photographically through composite photographs exhibited at monumental scale.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Over the past seven years, I have fashioned a conceptual and technical framework to respond the ocean - not to its outward appearance, but its emotional resonance. This work is a way to recapture the psychological space of the ocean and my deep connection to it by looking at the ocean through the translucence of time.
