"Actual fresh art isn't created by artists or people who have a conceptual objective in mind, because otherwise it's just contrived and it's made by people with privilege," says Jaskey. "How could they have anything good to say?"
"I tried to include a lot of stuff that I shoot in a series. A lot of these images, I have hundreds of them and I tried to include a little taste of everything. Like these, I’ve been shooting gloves on the ground for over a decade and I just like the shapes that they morph into — these sort of abstract compositions. This particular one, I shot it here in the winter first and I must have shot it in the summer when the snow melted and didn’t realize it was the same glove. This is in the middle of nowhere and so, it's just like, the fact that this worked out like this is a little sad because that means I’ve got way too much time on my hands. But it's funny that it's framed the same way and it's just here with winter and here with summer.”
