|This image represents an important pivot in my work when I first discovered the possibility to “break the form” of a photograph. I call this image an abstraction for lack of a better term. I don’t really know what it is other than some hybrid between photography and graphic art.But it is not related to a painting, because my technique does not employ any mark making. My abstractions are made only by distorting photographs, not drawing on them.
The result is an illusion that resembles reality, but leaves ample room for the viewer’s imagination to contribute personal meaning and interpretation. The original picture is of a sculpture located in Washington D.C.
