Inheritance 2007-9


This series of images are made with a very low resolution phone camera. The lack of 'quality' in these images is exploited to great effect. Some of the images appear abstract, others appear to connote traditions within landscape painting, such as JWM Turner, Caspar David Friedrich, Corot, Monet among others. Pixelation is the most common feature of these works, and becomes the central motif. Pixelated images run against the grain of the contemporary desire for greater resolution. However, resolution in art is not new. Resolution can also mean level of clarity, and a mediated result. In both cases, these definitions can be reified within the space of art, where art attempts to find new subjectivities.
