I have added a new section to my website ( kevinsu.com ) called Experimental.
This is a body of fine art work that I have been working on for the past year.
The technique is overlaying or "mashing up" several of my own original images to create a completely unique image. This resembles the process of collage and painting in a digital format.
Inspired by the surrealists and cubists, my goal is to take fragmented instances from different moments in time which may or may not be related, and tie them together into a cohesive body of its own. This reconstruction of time and instance follows many of the similar aspects of cubism. The end result often is a incoherent blend of the subconscious reflecting on the complexities of our thought at any single moment.
The images are becoming more personal as the project goes on. What started as a technique experiment has now become an outlet of personal expression. The images that I use range from different time periods and places in which each one evokes its own personal emotion and memory. The resulting image is a melange of emotions similar to the restless mind as our current state of thought is often a chaotic blend of elements in our lives.
The goal and concept behind the project is an ever-changing fluid evolution of ideas. The imagery is getting more and more complicated with each "mash-up" and the ideas expressed are getting deeper and more complex.
Canada day long weekend was a blast! I got two shoot two major events in town and listened to some amazing music. The Lingerie party at Tommy's had a great turnout and the freewhistler.com party in the woods showcased some amazing talent. I was blessed with the opportunity to shoot both events and join in on the partying. Please visit the link below to support freewhistler.com whistlers new internet radio station.
I had an amazing shoot last friday with Ryan and Alicia. The wedding took place at SFU diamond alumni center in the scenic area of Burnaby Mountain. I had scouted the location the day before so I had a good idea of where I wanted to shoot. The only thing out of my control was the changing weather and chance of rain. Luckily the rain held off and the clouds fluffed just enough to offer me a perfect backdrop. Here is a teaser of some of the shots!
This is a summer of exploration of my own backyard in Beautiful British Columbia. Once you break our of the Whistler and vancouver bubble the rest of BC is actually very barren and uninhabited. The logging dirt roads, small rural town and pristine scenery speak of a rich culture. It is like the wild west out there with native reserves, old general stores, abandoned mines and forestry equipment. Here are some recent shots taken in BC on my road trip adventures.
