Too Much of My Heart

$ 280

Archival ink on museum-quality cotton rag paper

Color Without U Looks Wrong To Me is the story of a California road trip Needham and his wife took the day they found out they were having a child. It recalls the surrealism and joy of that journey as well as the one they were embarking upon. Through photographic compositions Needham creates pieces from multiple moments, better speaking to the multitudes contained within each of us.

Focusing on calm spaces populated by whimsical items on the horizon is Needham’s attempt to grapple with the prospect of fatherhood. His wife’s ability to convey love through food has become such a huge part of his work. The featured signs occupy the roadside along these journeys. Some are old and faded but still stand tall as beacons of sustenance and a reminder of home.

“There’s a limited amount of space within a viewfinder or on a canvas and what someone chooses to fill it with says so much about them and what they were feeling at the time. It’s like a Rorschach test we create ourselves.”
