Lost in Translation

Bronson Shonk, Represented by ARTERRA

Those who work in the creative field are familiar with the importance of developing a new and unique language: an artistic voice. Through the pursuit of my own visual language I have become interested in how uniqueness and newness are achieved. There are many ingredients that go into this process. In my experience one of the key elements is the failures that happen when translating a technique from one medium to another. What is lost in translation often becomes the seed of a new discovery.
