Third Parties showcases Craig Redman's portraiture and comments on privacy in a media-saturated world. Redman grapples with how much of one’s identity can be erased before a person’s true self is masked or freshly created. The uniformly sized portraits of his friends and acquaintances represent a mini society that is then partially obscured with oversized graphic shapes, alluding to the question of how much of our personalities are abstracted and how much is revealed.
Redman addresses the current state of our online culture by lifting the mask of online anonymity. It’s fundamentally a matter of authenticity and the power of the individual to shape one’s own history. Enter the matrix and explore the boundaries of identity in cyberspace.
