Artist Research – Aaron Siskind.

Whilst I have been busy with this project I have been discovering some great influential and inspiring artists. Aaron Siskind is an artist that I really love. His work is so detailed and inspiring and this really does help and inspire my own pieces.

Siskind looks at detail in buildings, posters and decaying areas. He revisits these areas to see how the time and weather has decayed them further, documenting their progress through photographs in Black and White. He really tones in on the textures of these images, paying close attention to the leading lines and intricate detail.

I find his works clever as they represent and portray something that would normally be forgotten or passed over because they are not classed as “beautiful”. But hear Siskind makes them the centre of attention for everyone to admire and see, which in turn does make them beautiful.
