Color Fields

The photographs are taken facing a mirror with colored tape adhered to the front of the camera’s lens as they attempt to unpack the structural mechanics of photographic representation. The tapes obstruct the lens creating a field of color that cloud over the frame and the reflection of the artist. The photographs are on the verge of becoming abstract recalling color field paintings. Yet paradoxically it simultaneously reinforces its photographic origins by insisting on its own indexicality.
