Dominic Ciancibelli, Kalama, WA Member Since July 2006 Artist Statement I consider my work with the photographic medium to be my second sight, negotiated observations. This body of work is an extension of my past work with painting, drawing and sculpture.
Initially I used the tools of photography to record my sculptural work. Later on I became fascinated with the immense possiblities of the medium itself to produce visual ideas and concepts that related to my dimensional work in sculpture.
My 40 years of working with the photographic image lies somewhere between black (all colors) and white (the absence of color), between the surface of the eye and infinity, between the beautiful and the ugly, between Painting and Sculpture, between Love and Hate and Heaven and Hell, Yin and Yang and between Life and Death.
