Subject without Object = Abstraction
The phrase Subject without Object is an idea borrowed from Robert Motherwell, as outlined in his essay Reflections on Painting Now. Motherwell describes painting as an experience that changes the painter. “The painting makes you as much as you make it.” This could easily be said of my experience as a photographer and what I do. Within this paradigm, photographing becomes an act of creating one’s own life story. This work is an attempt at capturing a subjective experience, not representing a three dimensional world of physical objects.
