|Ceaphas Stubbs "The Flesh is Weak" 2013|
Ceaphas Stubbs' photographs are a exploration in narrative weight and meaning, as well as a complex practice. He layers ready made and found images and objects to construct luxurious still life scenes that challenge the viewer to examine relationships between physicality and desire. The painterly quality of Stubb's visual tropes is both a critique and a declaration of the power and value of iconography. The three dimensionality of the photographs is an invitation for conversation; an entry point to investigate associations and signifiers that subvert ritual and evoke nuance through color, space and imagery. The texture rich collages reference a shifting symbolism similary seen in Dali's playful surreal compositions, while being firmly grounded in the influential photographic considerations advanced by such artists as Zeke Berman and other luminaries in photography.
