Cy DeCosse
Milfoil Christmas Tree

$950

About

With a varied career as both an artist and art director, Cy has collaborated with many of America’s best photographers. His works are close, intimate portraits of almost infinite depth, casting the ordinary in an entirely new light. Looking through his trove of lush imagery, the recurring elements of classical still life composition, gorgeous Mediterranean light combined with his hand painted backdrops and magic touch, all suggest a secret anthropomorphic life in a perfect world of their own, for his commonplace subjects of flowers, fruits, vegetables, even weeds. Employing a technique he calls post-visualization, the artist is chasing the essence of his subject through a process that is completely opposite of what has been a revered ethos in photography, pre-visualization. With no preconceived idea of what the fished work will be, he's content to "feel" his way, hopeful that the exercise reveals something new about the inherent nature and personality of the subject. Gallery 270 represents distinguished photographers of the 20th Century and the emergent photographers of the 21st century from around the world. We place particular emphasis on modern emerging photographers employing traditional processes such as platinum/palladium, cyanotype, and gum bichromate, where the hand of the artist is much more intimately engaged.
