Converge

T'yanna Moore

May 22 - August 23, 2019 / AACC Library 

Artist Statement:

I am interested in the notion of convergence; the action or fact of moving toward a common terminus; of two things converging into one. It has to do with concurrence, with effect. We are bodies moving in space; points in space, converging. As a designer and photographer, and as a storyteller, I am interested in the duality that is identity; what is concealed and what is exposed. (My secrecy, my sanctity.) With the lens of my camera I probe for points of convergence amid the multifaceted features and attitudes that comprise the human form and distinguish us, one from the other. The images I create are obnubilated, reduced to near silhouettes. The telling aspect of my portraiture is situated precisely at the point where darkness converges with light.

Converge explores the duality that is identity; what is concealed and what is exposed. Using obnubilated imagery, the portraits are reduced to silhouettes, highlighting how the nuances of body language portray demeanor with all the same with all the same intents and purposes as facial expression. As a designer and photographer, Moore probes for points of convergence amid the multifaceted features and attitudes that comprise the human form and distinguish us, one from the other.
