Foundations, 2014, is a doubled photocollage of gesturally composed photographs arranged as bricks to form stable structures, or foundations. Placing the camera sensor in the role of canvas, the work investigates gesture, aura, texture, facture, and the hand of the artist in drawing and painting as applied to photography, as both the camera and paintings are in motion and reacting with one another during capture. Each photograph is filled with color, light, motion and texture, a meeting of mediums with a long history of complex and at times contentious dialogue. The Lightjet Ilfochrome format has been permanently discontinued. This work is irreproducible in this format.

“Fascinated by patterns, H Spencer Young’s pixelated artworks capture the relationship between reality and dream, the visible and the elusive. Warm and cool tones merge together into a hypnotic digital blur.”
