Paintings and other Things: the other Things, 2010

Hidde van Seggelen Gallery, London

 

A painting, alkyd and epoxy resin on mild steel (195 x 120 cm).

Nine gelatin silver photographs (195 x 120 cm).

A ball, alkyd and epoxy resin on stainless steel (15 cm Ø).

The photographs are made by reflecting torchlight from the painting's glossy surface directly onto photographic paper. Each photograph is a beautifully clear trace of the painting's tiny blemishes, inperceptible surface relief and bewildered layers. The painting's appearance varies greatly depending on the light; the photographs give it some stability, whilst confusing it. The ball rolled out of the painting a few days into making it.
