Painting

The work concerns itself with the manipulation of paint and its ability to manipulate image; as well as images ability to manipulate the construction and formalities of paint, questioning what is image and what is paint? Exploring the various levels of information needed within painting an image, exposing the ambiguity of resemblances and the instability of perception. By painting from popular images and re-painting from paintings further challenging the relationship between image and painting through paints own fluid materiality. Painting as an instinctive act, responding to an image and liberating painting from its formal constraint, the combination creates a static oscillation between paint and subject, in a battle to retain itself. Transforming the visual within the cognitive enabling semiological representatives. www.elizabethwheeler.net
