Time passes, memories fade, breaking into abstract, decorative fragments. In series "Fragments" by Long Island-based photographer Patricia Voulgaris, these new forms, shapes and patterns are what hold memories together.
The American photographer reconstructs personal recollections of her past, gives them a new imprint and then deconstructs them. Negative space distorts the original image creating an ambiguous, fragmented graphic form.
Anything can become a source of inspiration for her work, from the reflection of a light in a room, to a shadow, or an architrave. Recently the world of fashion has entered her roster of visual stimuli as can be seen in series "Fragments".
In her compositions, Patricia doesn't concentrate so much on the primary subject as much as on the empty spaces that envelope it and the abstract shapes that allow glimpses of human details, the focal points of the series. An exercise that moves towards a synthesis and message that sublimate the idea of memory.
