Grit Siwonia* (2010)

Siwonia work is squarely fashion/editorial as far as genre goes. But it takes the genres recognizable sensibilities and steeps them in a sort of Shutterstock vision of better living and then filters it all through a precocious awareness of how the Flickr Explore algorithm functions.

Not to knock those skills–they are as scarce as hen’s teeth–but if that were all there was to see, I wouldn’t be arsed with it.

There’s an underlying vitality to the work, though. Something to do with texture, gesture, expression and reverence–all deeply felt/experienced and manifested incisively.
