Adam Flewelling, Wisdom Teeth, 2020
Archival pigment print
12 x 16 inches
Edition of 4
In this recent body of work, Flewelling meditates on how contemporary modes of image making inform our experience of now, as a continuously unfolding moment, always framed by memories and projections. Upon viewing these moments captured during the pandemic, our experience of time gets put into question, expanding within and beyond each frame. The formal selection of disparate, fragmented, images, ultimately call into question structures of value, while considering both the evidential nature and poetic potential of a photograph.
