Posted on George Jardines iDisk is Podcast #26: Maggie Taylor and Jerry Uelsmann. From the Podcast notes:
“There is an inherent believability that photography has, and we’ve been conditioned from a very youthful age, to believe in images. So there is a wonderful sort of psychological dissonance that occurs when you’re seeing these images where all the detail is there, but the mystery remains, and that’s what I personally find attractive.” – Jerry Uelsmann
“I feel that I have a greater appreciation now because of the digital revolution that has occurred. Manipulated images are far more readily accepted as a viable form.” – Jerry Uelsmann
“The subject matter I’m interested in is just everyday life. Things that you encounter everyday, whether these are outdoors when you’re working in the garden, or something you see on the TV everyday. That becomes are a part of our subject matter for both of us. You’re just working from your own everyday emotional interaction with things.” – Maggie Taylor
This podcast was recorded on Wednesday December 20th, 2006, at the home of Maggie Taylor and Jerry Uelsmann in Gainesville, FL. Maggie and Jerry sit down with George and have a conversation about their art. We talk about the ways in which their work is similar, how it differs, and how fantasy, dreams and technique all play a role in their creative pursuits. In the process, we touch on their sources of inspiration, and the thinking behind their choices of materials and technique.
