Zombie and Damsel at Wright Park is a contemporary Victorian Death/Photo Collage of digital prints on matte cardstock with a blank, gessoed canvas background. I chose the Tacoma local, W.W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory in Wright Park, as the backdrop of this Victorian era inspired piece. The conservatory is one of the few remaining Victorian style conservatories on the West Coast. The visual discourse of the zombie and damsel are in reverence of the Victorian Death photography style. Although one remains as the walking dead, the damsel may not be far behind. In this moment, her memory lives on, captured in perpetual hope and terror of escaping or succumbing to the insatiable undead."
Website coming soon! For the moment, please take a look at the artist's ever growing photographic library at: www.flickr.com/photos/jpeters/sets.
