People I Know paintings
we are what we create (2007) This first started as a series of projects designed to work with the site-specific area of the Department of Art. The most successful of these projects was an installation where I created close to four hundred paintings, each measuring 3” x 5”. The paintings were developed around a thematic of representing a figurative form. The figurative form was constructed using an “O” as the head and an upside down “U” as a body. The paintings were installed edge to edge to create a solid block of work on three sides of a small enclosure. An audio piece was constructed from recordings of members of the art department repeating the title of the work.
The paintings were then used to create an ongoing series of books entitled People I Know. Each book contained twenty images and was designed in a similar manner to my other books with the only text being the title of the book.
