Twelve Vintage Cameras

The banal and ordinary subjects of his work are painted in a celebratory way, turning them into iconic vestiges of the not so distant past.

Bullseye

Artist Name: Shaunte Gates
Date Created: 2012

Curator’s Statement: An ambiance of end of the world…

Artist Statement: My work illustrates after effects of collisions between fantasy and reality. Some pieces expose the frenzy and momentum of a dream, others the pain of stillness. Within these entropic scenes, I merge paint and photography to harmonize the dichotomies of reality and fantasy. Through a fantastic lens; the aim is to capture an allegory of psychological effects on society due to the implementation of propaganda via media, economic, political and religious structures. I primarily focus on the individual and their personal conflicts within these structures. A viewer encounters a subject on the verge of something and is left to imagine their fate. Through the manipulation of light and depth and movement, the energy of the human psyche becomes the narrative.
