I re-uploaded the photos after working on them for a while...I used a flash this time, but I don't think it photographed as well. At least you can see that they are more polished than last time.
I have a show coming up in 2 weeks, so I’m trying to complete a body of photographs to hang in it. They are actually all still in progress – my goal is to add enough layers of graphite and polish it enough, so that there is no (or at least very little) visible gesture. Some of these are closer to that point than others. My conceptual concern with these is with monuments and groups, removing photographic information and isolating other info. I also really like playing with the perception of space and distance by adding flat, luminous, graphite marks on the photographs….how’s that for a half-assed, ambiguous explanation? So, tell me what you think.
