Eggs & Bottles
I was so happy to discover Ion Zupcu's work at an Auction last month. Zupcu photographs objects in such a way that gives them a mysterious antiquated appearance with blurred lines and smokey sepias, which is what attracted me to the Romanian born artist. The stacked collections remind me a bit of Irving Penn's concept he did in the 1980's. Ion says "People don't have time to stop and discuss the way they feel about shapes, styles, and objects they see, so my images are a conversation with myself, a diary of what I see."
