diptychs, triptychs, and grids

Listed bellow are a list of artists who specialize in diptychs, triptychs, and grids. I was provided with them in class for influence and ideas for the current project I am working on. Looking at the work of these artists helped me formulate the ideas for my current project and have also inspired me for future projects. For this project I decided to document people, through the use of triptychs, focusing on one specific detail others may not know about them at first glance. Some of the influences I found for this project came from the artists listed below and some from artist Gillian Wearing. In Wearing’s In the Making series she had her subjects ‘communicate’ through a written statement on a piece of paper and then documented them through photographs. A lot of her work involves discovering honest or unknown details of people. We often judge people at first glance without knowing anything about them. If they are presented in another way maybe we wouldn’t be so quick to judge…
