Drawing On Windows

2 April 2015

The brief exposures of light, the quiet murmurs of voices.

Tommy Fitzer (Elite London) is quick to melt into his every day comfort, quick to drape over his bed: to mould into the habitat he has made for himself, his nest. Upturned roses dry slowly on his wall as he assumes position after position cracking a smile, letting his personality trickle into the images, before fully saturating them with fragments of who he is.

Sophie Mayanne traces out his figure, the same way he draws shapes on his misty window. His movements become more natural, the clicking of the camera becomes background noise, just like blinking or breathing. The occasional laugh, they become solid, all layers which become flat for the image. Every element of life composed for one instant, before being undone again after the camera has blinked, breathed and laughed along with Tommy’s movements.

Dasha Kova drapes clothing on him much like the washing basket that is hap-hazardley askew from his head. A graceful tangling, an elegant display of every day. Christopher Shannon, CMMN SWDN and Natural selection are just some of the names that hang of his shoulders, that move so effortlessly with him, that allow him sway in front of us, to create the images we believe reflect a certain slant of living. A brief exposure of Tommy.
