scrap wrenn's recent photomontage works invite viewers to look into and beyond the picture plane in the spirit of exploration and openness to surprise. The process that gives rise to the hand-constructed (cut/torn), paper-layered photomontages involves the daily practice of looking deeply, taking photographs, and then falling into studio focus sessions to bring forth optically engaging, color-tracking motions and ground-shifting composite landscapes that allude to our photo-prolific cultural state—as well as environmental, social, and psychological crises that we are currently confronting on a global scale.
"I experience [the] creative process as a philosophic inquiry into the nature of reality itself, as an attempt to collapse subject and object through the lens and lens-captured imagery, and as a meditative movement of the breath in the physical-making. Photography could be seen as a devotional practice in appreciation of the world ‘as it is’…in each unfolding moment. Then, the fine art works collapse innumerable moments in space/time to also tell a story that asks the viewer to allow the great play of imagery to inspire awe - with focus, framing, and depth of field." - scrap wrenn
