Artist's Statement

THEKYLEMEYER.COM
With the world of photography becoming over saturated with photographers, I am striving as an artist to use my photographs in new and interesting ways. Traveling through southern Africa for a little over a year as a photographer,I started documenting basket and rug weavers. Curious in learning their craft I was taught by one of the masters how to hand weave baskets and rugs. Once I returned to the States I wanted to continue this specific craft with a modern spin. I started weaving my photography,pushing the colors during processing and mathematically mapping out patterns. Being Inspired by these new textures and imagery, I have started pushing how pieces were coming together. Now incorporating layering, hand sewing, and bleaching techniques to my photographs I have become focused on making my 2 dimensional images into sculptural pieces.
