Artistic Influences

I am drawn to the color palates and realism found in the work of George Bellows and Edward Hopper. As for JR, I really think he has discovered a fascinating way to incorporate image into landscape in order to make a statement. I have thought about trying to composite some of my footage in a similar way–inserting archival footage of the steel industry into modern landscapes of Homestead. My hope would be that the images of steelmaking and labor would appear almost ghost-like and transient in the frame–drawing interesting correlations between past, present, temporal spaces and physical places.
