Having just moved into a larger apartment, I’ve realized that as much art as I currently have it’s still not going to be enough, so I’m already on the lookout for new pieces. Thankfully I’ve got a lot of talented friends who make amazing art, like this new series from Vacation Days called “Cannonball”.
The “Cannonball” series is a continuation of my “Future Desert” project, exploring the mass of objects and the relationship between nature and a man made environment. This time the collages use mass-produced, factory-made materials that carry a texture mimicking nature but in mass are fundamentally different in every way. The pieces are all macro photographs collaged into familiar, yet fractured, shapes as a means to isolate sections so the process of looking is interrupted and more deliberate.
I’ll tell you the secret to these pieces. They’re actually macro photos of marbled balloons, chopped and spliced into these incredibly lovely/familiar shapes. When you look at them though they appear to be tiny swirling galaxies or something you’d see under a high-power microscope.
