While Atlanta-based visual artist, Caitlin Bates received her BFA in Photography from SCAD, she believes that “sometimes limiting one’s artwork to a specific medium constricts an   artist from growing while deconstructing the flow of ideas and thought   processes.”

Her project titled, Growth, Destruction, Rebirth I, reveals an idealized, clean, fibrous anatomy infused with nature.

Her project titled, Growth, Destruction, Rebirth I, reveals an idealized, clean, fibrous anatomy infused with nature.  I have to say that the execution could use a bit more polish but the idea behind these pieces is wonderful.  Look forward to seeing her grow and hopefully do more anatomical pieces in the future!

GOT ANATOMY?

Title: Growth, Destruction, Rebirth I.

A conceptual photo series by Caitlin Bates.

“My current bodies of work are reflections of interpersonal conflicts, ideals, and childish mentalities. They’re about viewing a world without blood and gore, leaving the meatiness of how our bodies work, function, feel, touch and see still vivdly in tact. Mentally and emotionally speaking, I haven’t grown up. Through my work I’m trying to work out the balance of these irrational thoughts and behaviors into the harsh reality of life.  ”

I’ve started work on a new project, or potential new project, but I desperately need some honest and constructive feedback. I feel like they are missing something, but I’m not sure what. Or maybe they work the way that they are. I’ve been staring at these almost everyday for a month and would like a new pair of eyes.

The idea of speaking your true feelings and thoughts to someone is completely terrifying, and it’s even more awful and terrifying if it’s something negative and to someone you care a great deal for. While communication is the backbone of all relationships, it puts more pressure on both party’s shoulders; you want to be honest without being hurtful and sometimes it’s just easier to not say anything at all. The result is a few days of heartache followed by weeks and sometimes months of “what I should have said was…” or “I can’t believe I never said…”; it’s an afterthought of guilt, heartache, embarrassment, shame and unrealized honesty. These have become the letters I should have written you.

it's been a while since I've posted this and I've gotten quite a few new followers lately... I do try hard to tag things when I live blog so here's a list of my tags I use for shows I live blog with various ships I ship included for your black listing needs.

If you’re in the Nashville area, I’ve got some work up as a resident artist at the Corvidae Collective in the heart of downtown. The shop itself has some pretty amazing work up. And it seems that a lot of the artists, both resident artists and exhibition artists - myself included - have quite a love and appreciation for all things weird.

Their space is in the heart of the Arcade, at 11 Arcade Nashville, TN 37219.

Go in and check them out if you can, and then get some great BBQ ribs accross the street.

Today I’ve been featured on one of my favorite blogs, Street Anatomy. I’ve got to say I’m pretty shocked/excited about it, but also a little embarrassed because some of the pieces up there I’m really not very proud of and am kicking myself for not re-working them sooner.

Regardless, this is really exciting for me and might actually be the spout of motivation I’ve been needing to finess this series and complete it.
