Less than 24 hours after it was posted, Tony Corocher’s The Quiet of Silence Master was purchased for 6 ETH. This is no surprise. The piece is one of the most obviously beautiful manifestations of imperfect perfection (Wabi Sabi) photography, a medium that Tony is no stranger to.
With over 17 photography accolades and 11 exhibitions across the globe, Tony has developed masteries in street, landscape, and portrait photography. The Quiet of Silence is one of the first Async Art photography pieces and showcases a unique set of possibilities for programmable photographic art.
Much like a broken teacup that has been glued back together with a mixture of lacquer and a dusting of gold flakes, The Quiet of Silence takes three distinctly serene scenes, breaks apart its subjects, and then puts them back together in a variety of different ways. No matter the combination, the serenity of background mountains and still water is always penetrated by the imperfect duck, boat, or boy fisherman.
The viewer must come to terms with these imperfections and accept that the work will never be symmetrically immaculate in its design. But that’s the whole point: we can find beauty in imperfection. Perhaps the imperfect beauty is actually even more beautiful than pristine symmetry.
The work is split into 3 Layers (a triptych), Acceptance of Transience 1-3, that form a larger artistic composition. Acceptance of Transience 1 captures the foreground of the image, Acceptance of Transience 2 embodies the subjects, and Acceptance of Transience 3 showcases the perfect backgrounds of the work.
The owners of the three Layers get to collaboratively create different paysages in distinct equilibrium with each other. No matter the combination, Tony has meticulously worked to create interchangeable combinations that all weave seamlessly together.
According to Tony, this is only the beginning of his artwork releases on our platform. Stay tuned for more updates on his releases.
