David Diodate

ARTIST STATEMENT:

I photograph a variety of subject matters that are mostly indicative to a Southern feel or place. Then I do selects and editing before sending for printing. The prints are then sorted and laid out with a variety of found materials until ready to be combined. My photographic collages are C Prints which are torn, scratched and folded. The prints are then stained in a variety of substances from oil paint, dirt, and charcoal. They are then scraped, sanded, and painted before a final coat of wax is applied. As of late I also incorporate old books, found text, old photographs and tintypes along with the treatment & encaustic.
