Painting With a Camera

Jerome Sedlock

Jerome Sedlock’s abstract imagery is informed by his mechanical engineering and design background. His work follows in the trajectory of abstract photography that had its beginnings in the early 20th century in the work of Alfred Stieglitz, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and the Surrealists. But representational images remained dominant until the 1990s when digital photography and image enhancing tools allowed for new types of experimentation. Sedlock’s dramatic photographs emphasize shape, forms, patterns and textures, all rendered under the play of hard and soft light. By focusing on isolated part of an object and removing the parameters of context, Sedlock creates distinct, evocative images that challenge our perception of familiar objects.
