Triptychs & Diptychs

            
 
             A triptych is a three-panel artwork or photograph. A diptych is a two-panel artwork or photograph. Most people have seen horizontal triptychs with vertical cuts. Sometimes I prefer vertical triptychs with horizontal cuts or triptychs with one large panel and two smaller ones. I call these t-cuts.

I find creating triptychs and diptychs a fun and challenging mental exercise. Curating photography exhibitions is similar, but I work with 70-300 images instead of just 2-3.

Usually, I like to match colors, align lines, continue shapes, show time progressions, and tell stories. Sometimes I want to make comparisons such as near versus far or still versus moving. Occasionally, Judy-the-Ripper slices up images so they become more abstract; this is deconstruction. At other times, I want to carefully position scrambled parts and build something no one has ever seen before; this is reconstruction. Photos that interest me individually may become more intriguing when they are in a relationship with one or more other images.
