Oh James, 2018 [Pop (3D) Lenticular]
Between the serendipitous chaos of a poolside scene in the Desert and the resplendent display of modern architecture in Palm Springs, Oh James captures, and even (re-)enacts, the dynamic stillness of the filmic world through the material movement of the (3D) assemblage. Mixed media and mixed perspectives are spliced-together in the work, ultimately coalescing in the multiplied photographic reality that evolves along the corrugated rivulets of the lenticular. Bodies are simultaneously near and far, precise and blurry; visions of the work are shuttered and revealed with the gesture of the camera’s aperture.
This stunning work offers so many lush elements
shadows and light,
private and public
danger and safety,
movement and stillness,
water and air
open and closed
enclosed and released
