David "Squid" Quinn - Room 320
As I continue to explore my photographic sensibility, there are a few things that are always part of my work. Strong colors have always attracted me and continue to be part of my photographs. I like that people usually seem more emotionally open to bold colors. Often I use compositions that avoid clues as to perspective and orientation. I think this pulls the viewer into the work and takes them on a little bit of a journey as they try and solve the puzzle. The “BAGGED” series began as a variation on an old art-school drawing exercise that consisted of drawing an object that was placed inside a paper bag. My concept was to apply color to this monochromatic idea using gelled lights. As soon as I started shooting, I was excited by the vast possibilities of compositional equations and color blending experiments.
