Nicholas Fedak II
Alternative Facts: Photography by Any Means
Artist Statement, 2021
My work is transforming images by capturing their elusive, evanescent past. These images are visual ghosts that capture the passing light and an essence of what was. What happened to these strangers who laughed and loved? Are we seeing what’s left of their forgotten dreams? Or only an illusion of what’s been left behind? My work is transparent and fleeting, as is memory and the intangible, evanescent past.
With my body of work, the past is yet to come!
We dedicate this show to Nicholas Fedak II, who passed December 2020.
On display March 1 – April 12, 2021 at the PACE Center Art Gallery:
