The Golden Jay Acceptance Gallery Piece
As an artist who has faced a lot of diversity and challenges starting from and early age, the ability to be creative through the art of photography has provided me with a creative outlet that allows me to tell my story in ways that can be relatable to others and interrupted in a multitude of ways.
Photography has allowed me to push the envelope when designing concepts and incorporate many elements to bring the image to life. Through and extensive process in designing the concept and working with other creative partners to make it all come together. Through a personal connection, we wanted to incorporate natural and outdoor elements that provided an abstract connection in to a fantasy world where the things you imagine are hopeful yet improbable.
Our Golden Jay who would appear to be held at the highest level of acceptance based on her exterior façade, desires to rewrite her own story then to be confined by the one written for her. The story speaks to the battle within, through the struggles and uncertainty that fogs her life. Succumbing to external elements to find the ultimate change and transform. We utilized many elements to bring this piece and the many metaphors to life, with the use of literature that speak to the overall story. The gold Elements that signify what we perceive as ultimate superiority. The use of fog that demonstrates the real struggle and desire to transform into something else.
