These works address the existing physical and philosophical controversies surrounding 'painting' and 'photography'. Employing a negative colour-reversal look, they bring painting and photography into direct contact with one another. The interesting concept of paintings on canvases derived from photographic sources) and photographs that look like paintings deliberately questions the positive and negative and dismisses the common workflow of an original painted canvas and subsequent photograph. The overall effect is a fusion of information which seems opposed to today's commodified contemporary art meltdown.
These ideas are very similar to the concept I was attempting to recreate in my previous project, "Last Watch," in which I attempt to break down the wall between original and innovative by using varying color palettes. However, I would love to expand my efforts to incorporate elements of color-reversal and afterimages.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
