Work from Representations.
“My series “Representations” combines photography and drawing to explore the concept of photographic truth and its correspondence to perceived reality. No digital manipulation is involved. Focusing on the representation of ordinary things, I draw directly onto 3-dimensional objects (which I have painted over in white paint) to create visual hybrids that appear to vacillate between drawing and photography, black-and-white and color, signifier and signified. My photographs intend to draw attention to how we see. They examine the illusory nature of representation, and challenge those assumptions we might have about photography and its relationship to what we believe to be true.” – Cynthia Greig
