Signe Johnson - Artist Statement

It was my goal to take an object commonly seen, and create a visually magical experience from it. I have a passion for experimenting with plastic drop cloths. I must admit that they are a reasonable purchase for any young college student. I love the way that drop cloths catch the light dramatically, both at night and in the daytime. With this dramatic material, and easy access to such large amounts, I have created a series of interesting images. In these portraits I wanted to portray myself fleeting and weightless, as if precious and finite moments were accidentally caught on camera for all to see.
