artist's statement

"In my current series, titled Figure Ground, I've juxtaposed two unrelated images and presented them as one. Instead of typically shooting new photographs for this body of work, I accessed all the negatives I have made in the past twenty years. While reviewing the proof sheets of some 16,000 negatives, I inadvertently began to create pairs of images that were unrelated and notice the similarities between the two. I realized that this is similar to how our brains make sense of the world. The combination of a figurative image with an image that lacked a figure was philosophically interesting and recalled the age old theme of Man and (vs.) Nature, or the imposition of humans upon the ground. In light of our current environmental crisis, this theme seems to be ever more poignant."

Vincent Serbin, 2008
