'stiLife' is a personal series and it was triggered by when I visited my old time friend painter/artist Peter in his apartment by Union Square in NYC. I have been to his apartment a million times but this time when I saw the empty canvas for the 100th time against the wall with no paint on it it dawned on me it was very symbolic for the situation. Peter had a stroke about 8 years ago and haven't painted since though he has painted in his head he tells me. I asked to photograph him in front of the canvas with my iPhone and then I shot a few without him in it. Once home and uploaded to my computer I started playing around and Voila! a new idea was born which worked really well with especially my two last series 'S_PACE' and 'allONE' which was dealing with time, space and consciousness.
The idea to 'stiLife' is to explore the concept of space, time and consciousness and what better way to do it through an empty canvas. The series is still in its infancy and who knows where it will end up. I am here photographing portraits, dancers, spiritual people, nudes... and each time something new happens. Right now the series is shot on the same location.
So far I am very happy with the result and where my brain is taken me in this series. I have created thus far one definite final product and probably another 5-6. I expect the series to have somewhere between 15-20 in the end.
