Videography by Paul Duran-Lemos

Inspired by shadows cast as the sun moves across the sky or night shadows projected through dark windows by the nocturnal lights of the city. These layered works fall over the viewer, capturing the feeling of being completely enveloped by nature, the shadows stretching to touch one another creating a canopy of light and dark. Created through the collage of found paper, cardboard, and various plants layered in delicate overlapping silhouettes with spray paint and intervened with charcoal.
