Nicholas Fedak II

Artist Statement Submitted 2014

"SPLENDOR AND DECAY" is a series of photographs taken in and around Richmond, Virginia. Although splendor and decay are thought to be exact opposites, they can exist together in a color photograph to create a dynamic juxtaposition of the present with the past.

Peeling paint, building vestiges of what used to be, and ghostly gothic interiors are the images I have conjured up to represent the intangible, evanescent, past and present of the glorious South.

Should you happen to pass by one of these forgotten dream worlds, ALWAYS remember what was, and most importantly, what will be.
