CORRIE ANCONE Artist’s Statement: "When i started out as an artist my medium was painting, but falling in love with photography allowed a spontaneity i was craving. Using the technique of sandwhiching stills, where colors and images collide,I create new visual and emotional images, often painterly and somewhat surreal. My photography is similar to and reflects the techniques and working styles of the early European Dadaists by whom i am surely influenced along with Romanticism,Impressionism and Baroque. Drawing my inspiration from mythology , nature and the environment, my creativity stems from my lust for finding and exploring sympathies between the human bod,y the landscape and textures. I don’t care for the certainty of what’s in front of my lens, but the creativity, the fantasy, the invention, that can gush from a thought there after or was before. Between the certain and the uncertain there’s a possible space, like in dreams and fables.”
