Lost Pictures 2009 Mixed media on found images

Work statementLost PicturesThe drawings and paintings represent a trace, a mark of an event that is past and present - appearing and disappearing. Through the use of found photographic material, painting referencing or literally covered with the mark of the hand I look at the space in between these two realities, the mark made in the present, and the photographic.
Investigating how representation reproduces the other as the same, I am looking for the blind spot in the visual real that might reveal a way to redesign representational real. I am also looking at memory, using images accidentally found that hold a personal resonance for me, and in this way offer a glimpse to recapture something lost.
The act of the hand re-connects with the anonymity of the found image. The existence of the two together create this state that interests me, a fragility of being and non-being. The trace of something left from before against a non-place.
