Fill in the Blanks

These photo paintings which have a wide range of subject matter play with the difference between photographic space and the painted surface. In certain images the painting and the photography switch roles; the photo image provides the abstract compositional space most often associated with painting and the physical marks placed over the images fills the role of reference to actual space. Exhibited at a Pop Up location, 1130 College Street West.

All photographs 36"x 24", c-print with acrylic paint

BETTER LIVES THAN YOURS OR MINE

These "Gesture Drawings" were exhibited at Redhead Gallery as a part of a group exhibition. Inspired by a "how to" book for ELL students describing different gestures. I was interested in the audience having to figure out what the gesture described by performing the gesture themselves.
