Detritus Source from Provenance
From Provenance Unknown Detritus Source is a Work in Progress, Currently I shared a studio space at Artscape Gibraltar Point on the Toronto Islands. This facility has a short-term residency program for artists.. When these artists-in-residence return home they leave discarded materials from their art-making process. These Images are of the brown paper that covers the studio tables. This discarded paper is covered in notes and paint and material used in production of the work, evidence of the artistic process.
I see this photographs as a kind of portrait in absence of the artist. It also becomes a meditation on the materiality in a time when digital creation overshadows traditional methods of production..
