These are combination pieces of abstracted photographs of details of paintings that I created. I printed photographs of the paintings onto canvas and mounted them on metal. The materials and tools of both the locations and the mediums are combined. Except for one thing: no Photoshop work in making the images. These red images look topographical or like the surface of something like skin, or pond scum because they are part of my Underpinnings project where I research personal and genetic history and figure out ways to represent my findings. I finished these after my residency in Budapest, Hungary. Each piece is 18×20″, oil pastel, canvas on metal. 2015.
