Vellum Prints

Reality Frames

Series of 8x10 inch digital prints of photographs on vellum, using three overlays, with each printed layer decreased in size by 33%.

Writer W.G. Sebald's "treatment" of images by running them through a copy machine was a way to portray the mercurial nature of memory. Many artists have used this technique extensively, including Thomas Barrow and his Varifax Prints, and Wade Guyton who uses printers as an art implement.

Printers can make "original originals" instead of the mere reproduction of a digital instantiation of an original, such as a giclee print of a photograph of a painting.


Framed as a triptych in 11x14 dark gray mat and white gallery frame.
