John Bodin Statement

Regarding photography…’Mere representation is not enough’…quoted renowned
American photographer Fredrick Sommer. I agree. I prefer to create images that
have a visual interpretation of the subject or content. Pairing back the elements with
partial abstraction are some of the ‘tools’ I choose to achieve this. It is also the link
and inspiration between this body of work and the 20th century Russian/American
painter Marc Rothko (pictured)
Rothko ceased to be interested in representational likeness and became fascinated
with the articulation of interior expression. His best known works, have come to be
called his "sectionals", and Rothko felt they better met his desire to create universal
symbols of human yearning. His paintings were not self-expressions, he claimed, but
statements about the condition of man. The all-over compositions, the blurred
boundaries, the continuousness of color, and the wholeness of form were all
elements of his development towards a transcendental experience of the sublime.
My admiration of Rothko’s philosophy and work has directly shaped these
photographs and as I gaze deeply into the images and observe the evolving
moments of creation followed by such exquisite dissolution, I wonder to myself….
surely this is a portal to Transcendence.
