Artist Statement | Buffout Series |
Works from the "Buffout" series are archival inkjet prints that have been altered by an industrial sandblaster. Every image in the series is uniquely affected by the difficult to control tool; an erosion of visual information, largely based by chance, take place. Sometimes it mimics darkroom “dodging” by subtly lightening colors. Or, it’s aggressive, blasting holes completely through the paper. This crudely defaced photograph gives the paper a more active role in the final image, showing signs of obvious wear that speaks to a humble beauty, rather than to exposing faults.
