Megan Cosby — Album
Posted on June 8, 2012
Megan Cosby merges the old and the current in photo-album like paintings.
This series combines the familiar and nostalgic. I chose specific color palettes, people, objects and locations that portray a context that are both current and old. This group of paintings is like an old photo album, where the memories have been reorganized. Past meets present. Old memories merge together with current ideas and interests. Faded colors are placed with bright colors. The two time periods in life that I focus on are childhood and today. I concentrate on the time period where intentions and desires are pure and use the excitement of then and the lessons learned after to provoke what I do now. Album is a reflection of this mindset. This series encourages progression. It’s not how good you are, it’s how good you want to be. Everyone was once inspired. What inspires you today? What’s your album?
