DARK EDGE

25th October, 2020

These photos are all the most vibrant out of those I have taken lately. Recently I have felt overwhelmed by the start of the semester, and subconsciously the work I’ve made has taken on a more expressionist look. Through quarantine I found myself obsessing over visual art and a recent hit for me has been all of the work done by David Lynch. I've been inspired by the way he uses color and setting to transform something that would usually bring comfort into something with a dark edge that makes it feel slightly off or unsettling.
