I had the pleasure of working with the talented artists Jenna Annunziato [ https://www.jennaannunziato.com ] who became the first person to sit for a series of portraits using my Painting with a Camera technique. The results are fascinating and stunning. Below is a small selection from the series.
The series is an exploration of dialogues. Pictorially it creates a dialogue between representational and non-representational (figurative and abstract) art. It expands the conversation that has ensued for over a century between painting and photography. Conceptually it explores the dialogue between a formulated approach and chance opportunity. Because the series realizes these dialogues, these polarities of opposition, it, therefore, embodies their inherent contradictions. These contradictions, in part, are manifest in the process of creating each image.
The complete statement on the series is coming soon.
