Anthony Barron is an artist who is trying to navigate the stagnant and homogenous world around him. In this digital age with its ocean of images and throwaway and recycled culture, he uses photography and other lens-based media to explore the tropes that have been established by the history of art and the more recent history of photography. A new heterotopia is made and a new identity can be explored. He graduated with a BFA in photography from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and an MFA from The University of Arizona.
This time I know we could (Just Like I)
A parallel exists and from time to time it crosses over and changes what we see. A disruption turns the mundane into something new perception is skewed. It’s not what you see, but how you see it. Yellow like an old bruise sits at the edges and behind it something beautiful and new awaits made from the parts of time and experience that matter most.
As each possible moment becomes a fragment with the potential for something new, each fragment an aggregate of last moments, with no grand message, yet everything is present and meaning is found in the otherwise meaningless detritus of the quotidian. This is temporal–it will change.
The new and its infinite possibilities rise to the forefront. A similar image passes by and the loop extends and undulates like some uncertain wave–shimmering, elusive and hopeful.
