La Rossa, 2015

La Rossa, 2015
Street photography and digital manipulation

From the moment I started taking street shots in earnest, I wanted to see them next to abstract paintings. It seemed like it would make an interesting fit. Since then I have taken a lot of street shots and developed a more abstract way of working with the images I take. So it seemed natural to bring the two strands of what I do together. La Rossa is a work in progress, or rather an element of a larger work. Having taken the step of combining works I discovered what La Rossa is missing is another element: a tabletop sculpture…back to work.

La Rossa is the third track on Van der Graaf Generator’s 1976 album, Still Life. You can listen to the song (9:54 of sonic heaven) here.

Leon Hart, who has been a friend of TFIPM for a long time and been thrice captured in street portrait form, (the last time being here) has an exhibition of his paintings from the last two years coming up at the Leyden Gallery in London 24-28th November 2015. Leon’s work is great, so this is a must see.
