Old Made New

This work was birthed from thinking about how the new digital revolution has changed photography and yet My work in this series comes from the concept of how the evolution of photography has changed yet continues to mimic the history of a painting. I appropriate famous images from photographic history and then dissect them into individual pixels, similar to the film’s grain, so they resemble the paintings of photo-realism. The images are printed as individual pixels and then assembled onto a large six-foot canvas. My work seeks to embrace the tradition of painting and the affect it has on photography.
