imago corporis impressa

Sconyers' imago corporis impressa body of work, which includes CNC router-cut rings and panels, graphite chine collé drawings, digital and platinum/palladium photographs and photography based sculpture, made its debut in Hunt Gallery at Mary Baldwin College in 2015.

 

The images were collected in rose gardens located in North Carolina.  The sculptural pieces were created through a process of cutting up the photographs and reassembling them as randomly placed, tessellated pyramids mounted on wooden circles.  Each flower selected exhibits a faded beauty with poignancy that penetrates in reflection. The circles hang like vanity mirrors, capturing reflected portraits of beauty and decay in fleeting moments. The patterns that emerge through the random method of their composition create a space for reflection. 

 

The photography-based sculptures "...are a series of highly-crafted structures that fuse the artist's digitally photographed subjects with inventive uses of other media.  Inspired by the forms and textures of roses, these structures explore curious intersections of organic and geometric form, affording experiences of perceptual and conceptual transformation.  Sconyers says the following about his work: 'The images were collected in rose gardens during visits to the south.  The sculptural pieces were created through a process of cutting up the photographs and reassembling them as randomly-pieced, tessellated pyramids mounted on wooden circles.  Like vanity mirrors, the circles capture reflected portraits of beauty and decay in fleeting moments.  The patterns that emerge through the random method of their composition create a space for reflection.'" (artist, art educator and art critic Paul Ryan)
