I didn't take photos at the exhibit. However, I went home and created my own composition inspired by Escoto's work. Escoto uses Polaroid technology and stencils to block certain areas of the film and takes multiple exposures with different parts of the film exposed to create his compositions. I used a section of a photo (see it in the next slot in this album) and created the above digitally with Photoshop. It took a while to get each section to look like it had the right (more or less) perspective. But once I created a section on the left, I was able to copy and flip it horizontally to create the right side. I made the sections toward the back slightly smaller, less saturated, darker and with less contrast to increase the 3-D appearance. I thought about creating cast shadows on the pieces, but will save that for another time.
Carol P., First of all, I love the photo as it appears in the next slot. I'm not great at photoshop so I doubt that I could do something like this but, you've done a great job.
Thanks rg. I like my original composition, too, but I'm an artist who feels obliged to try new things. Some of my experiments work; some go into my computer's trash can. This one turned out pretty much as I expected. Escoto uses images that are more textural or patterned like the sky, marble, or bricks. I think it might have been a mistake to use such a representational image. But I'll probably be playing with the concept for a while, trying a variety of images and shapes.
