Dusk Man

August 19, 2012

Dusk Man is the name of an image that I have created a number of times in different scales and different media.  It was initially a small model on my studio window sill in UMass, Amherst.  I photographed it as the sky turned pink in the evening. The colour was amplified by the vast expanse of snow outside.  The image is symmetrical and parallel to the picture plane. A screen exists between the picture plane and the figure that has been folded horizontally and vertically.  This first image of Dusk Man is an intaglio printed by hand from two photopolymer plates.  It is a contemporary technique that mimics photogravure, one of the earliest forms of photography.  Photography has always been used to record people.  I want to create a suggestion of something real but, at the same time, to produce an ambiguity that causes the spectator to work: to wonder what kind of reality they are looking at.
