Erasures

Erasures

A series made from high gloss photographs, which have been painted on with matte gouache (a.k.a. opaque watercolor).

 

Erasures is a series of matte-textured paintings which neutralize the glossy photographic images which serve as their canvas. In a systematic method of camouflage painting that mimics the "rollering" or erasure of graffiti, billboards and people are made illegible and characterless. Through this neutrality, the images echo the vacant minimalism of these urban markings, addressing the solitude of existence and mutability of identity.
