Light Forays by Greg Penn
Light Forays is a body of work that blurs mental and physical depth. Haptic and scopic experiments integrate into event-perceptions, exploring sensations in sight, sound, touch, taste, smell and emotion, compressing perceptual diversity into unity.
‘I use light to explore virtually infinite possibilities, linking, generating, and manipulating colour. I am interested in colour and its manifestation, its presence, not as a filler for something but as the subject all of itself. As the camera narrows vision, I look to expand my vision by probing psychological, metaphysical and spiritual experiences. I am less concerned with duplicating physical reality and constantly question the role and limits of photography. I am interested in becoming a part of the picture and aim to produce a treatment of the image that involves the perceptual and physical activity of the viewer upon viewing.’ – Greg Penn.
