Painting and Photography can be. I want to push the ideas of what a photograph is and how painting can play a part in the manipulation of traditional black and white photography. I do not use traditional cropping. Purposely leaving a portion of the photo blank gives me the space and opportunity to change the photograph into something else. I use acrylic paint, ink, marker, and bleach to manipulate the photograph. The work you see before you is a collection of artworks that use these techniques to manipulate the photograph.
