James Porschen

James Porschen's work abstracts reality, transcending the literal and focusing on the underlying essence of nature, letting it's sublime reflection emerge. This body furthers an exploration into the phenomenology of abstraction. These images concentrate specifically on color field theory, focusing on the interplay of lines and colors to create emotional responses. In order to establish a common link in which past, present and future are blurred the landscapes remain void of notions that deal directly with time and space. A visual interference and a breakdown of context is intentional. Having a disorienting effect at times, the perspective of the print is transformed by removing references to scale and origin. Landscape imagery is most often seen as a place rather than an idea. The neon tubes help further the work from its original geographic location. This enables the viewer a subjective interpretation rather than the dismantling of the image objectively. The images are not intended to reflect the location they were taken but rather the inner destination one creates while viewing them. With the loss of narrative associations, these images may then serve as vessels for contemplation.
