Artist statement 
This work relies on the history of the photograph while also traversing along paths of wonder, chance, and phenomena.
My thought process while starting this series of photographs is based in the scientific method in the form of hypothesis, however, through my experiences in float tanks I have learned to release the rigidness of expected controls. The flow of the work is a showcase of choices derived from freeing my conscience, allowing it to drift from one variable to the next.
The work is generative whilst still cohesive by considering many operating mechanisms of photography. By starting at the basics and fundamentals of the photograph, I expand on the possibilities of the properties and materiality of light-sensitive photographic papers. While undermining and subverting traditional black and white photography conventions I hope to transform and inspire new understandings of what a photograph is through these experiments of photographic representations.

FAQs for Artists

What is your gallery traffic like?

Being as the gallery is located in our float center, we get a lot of crossover foot traffic.  Aside from the gallery, we run 1200 floats a month, and are located in the heart of the SE on Hawthorne Blvd. The shop has large windows facing the street, so the art is visible 24/7 from the sidewalk.

What mediums do you accept in the gallery?

Anything that can be hung vertically by our wire/hook track system. Please do not include any fresh/wet oil pieces.

What is your commission rate?

We only charge a 5% commission!! This basically just covers credit processing charges.

What about the original piece?

Along with the process of being a gallery exhibitor, you will be given 4 float sessions in exchange for one original float inspired piece after completing your float sessions.  It will also be hung in the gallery for the duration of the month. After your month is over the original, float inspired piece will belong to Float On to be appreciated for ages to come.

What is your transport policy?

The gallery artist is completely responsible for all transport of gallery pieces.

Do I have to sign a contract?

Yes, there is a basic contract involved, but it is painless.
