Hypothetical Portraits (Expressionistic Heads)
These images are of a side project that I attend to from time to time. They are scanned images of paintings done with oil stick on paper (typically paper with photocopied images from other, previous work). The finished paintings are places in plastic film and scanned on a flatbed scanner. The texture of the thick paint and the resulting ridges on the paper surface combined with the plastic film produce the slightly whitish, ghosted area in may of the images. I make each work available as a photographic print or as an original painting on paper.
