New Work – Sam Falls


“My recent works are only part photographic – they are installations, paintings, and drawings as well – ultimately, they are works on paper. The non-figurative pieces are careful arrangements of seamless backdrop paper from photo-shoots with construction paper, photographed with a large format camera, painted on digitally, printed, and repainted on with acrylics, pastels, and watercolors. The more figurative works are taken with this particular process in mind and submitted to the procedure in order to devalue the historic hierarchy of the photographic moment of “this has been” and highlight the flatness of the picture plane, the underlying aesthetics of the image, and the individual work’s actual production, change, and development over time. By moving, adding, and subtracting color and composition after the image is produced, photography is only part of the larger artistic equation, the concerns of which are less medium specific than art-historically and aesthetically driven.” – Sam Falls
