“THE CONVENIENCE OF THE DIGITAL WORLD LEAD PEOPLE TO ISOLATE THEMSELVES FROM ONE ANOTHER. OUR PIECE EVOKES THE BARRIERS – PHYSICAL, VIRTUAL AND PERCEIVED – THAT ISOLATION CREATES. THE PLASTIC BAGS INSULATING EACH IMAGE REPRESENT THE BARRIERS THAT SEPARATE US FROM THE CONTENT WE CONSUME. THOUGH WE MIGHT NOT REALIZE IT, ISOLATION CAN CHANGE OUR PERCEPTION OF THE WORLD. THIS IDEA IS REPRESENTED BY THE INVERTED IMAGE OF THE “WORLD” THE VIEWER SEES.” – D.M

Working with digital photography, film and Polaroids produced by the 11 collaborators, Alarcon Sanchez hand embellishes and manipulates images to create something entirely new. Though the technical process varies, alternately using ink, acrylic or spray paint, beads or sewn materials, even etching/scratching directly onto negatives – his signature style has become synonymous with his artistry and is bewitching to view. In this collaboration, Alarcon Sanchez challenges the ideas of beauty, our obsession with perfection and our consciousness of self by presenting a fiction upon a reality.
From the fashion-esque portraits and stylized photography of Serene Supreme and Erin Pederson, to the storytelling photography of Michael Watson and the bold, expressive images from Nicholas Larkins Perez, each photographer involved in the Ineffable series brings a style distinctively personal. Using this diversity as a way to explore the multiple visages we wear in our day-to-day life, Alarcon-Sanchez creates altered images which explore not only the different faces of their subjects, but also the darkside: grotesque and sinister elements hidden beneath the surface, while unmasking the true, inner selves in all of us.
