ABOUT THE ARTIST

ARTIST STATEMENT

Working primarily in recycled substrates and materials, Hugo and MK do what they do best, unifying image and form along with celebrating world capitals, in their current, and ongoing series, Wooden Postcards. The photographic artwork created by Semos and Garcia Urrutia in this collaborative style is a visual interpretation of an urban landscape, full of nostalgia, decay and charm, from New York City, London, Paris, and other cities around the globe, as places of inner experience as well as urban sprawl. Like a web slowly forming, these special hubs of the world act as melting pots, cradling vast amounts of cultures and ideas; live organisms that become cultural icons themselves.

The imagery is initially created by Semos with a manual, very basic Holga lm camera, which allows her to create intuitive collages inside the camera by overlapping frames and double-exposing the lm. Later, after processing the lm, “story boards” are chosen from her lengthy narrative of images, signs, pop-color, and surprise code. Her cross-processing technique gives colors maximum saturation. This collaborative team earned and completed an artist in residency with the Fairmont Hotel group, where they produced artwork in situ and lived in a penthouse at the Dallas Fairmont. Shortly after, they moved to London and now divide their time between the UK and the States.
