Henry Avignon is an artist and writer who has been featured in several literary and art magazines.
Avignon describes his work:
“My work deals fundamentally with notions of “material desire.” This is exemplified by an urge to “document” signatures of energy in medias res when such modes of desire are multivalent. To approach the exotic presences of energy on Nature’s terms is why I turned from painting to PHOTOSCULPTING – The principle desire being to let go of a degree of subjective control in the work, to shift the paradigm of creativity from the masculine to a feminine nature: artist as conduit and incubator of externally oriented and catalyzed life energy rather than internally rooted projections of an individualized imaginary. To identify, interpret, translate and present artistic forces rather than create from the limiting material energy of just my own sources of poetic logic. Keeping with the photographic tradition that one need document a moment in time all images then represent captures of processes that are unfolding in time. All Images are straight shot renderings of built environments. Only the manipulation, by pushing and pulling, of light is employed. The presence of burnt white is an important part of the aesthetic pathology.”
