Grand Rapids, MI
Logan Zillmer is going to make images, whether you ask him to or not (though, he does get really excited when you do). There is an obsessive nature in the way that he works. For him, the cure for everything is to make work. He is driven by ideas. He is fascinated by mystery, especially with finding it in the quotidian. He loves comedy and tragedy best when they are paired together, and much of his work runs, in varying degrees, along that axis. Aesthetically, he is drawn to the American landscape and scene, suburban communities, simplified color schemes, interesting characters, and above all, the mysterious, transporting quality of light and atmosphere.
