"The Fall of Icarus" (Fallen 004)
Digital Print of a Photographed Drawing
12in x 12in
In the initial stages of image production, I’m reconstituting printer’s ink and pouring and pulling it across a smooth paper surface. This repetitive action and its ensuing forms connote the layering of present experiences over erased or invisible histories – palimpsests of viscera. This composite photograph resembles emulsive prints and other 19th-century photographic processes. Deviations from the original image challenge the primacy of the initial mark. An implied transition from the corporeal to the spiritual places the works within larger frameworks of inquiry.
