Painted on the staircase where we once posed, my sister and I appear life-size, but ghostlike. This work is part of a series which feature snapshot-derived paintings on a three-dimensional environments. From one angle the painted areas coalesce into the image on the left. However, from all other angles, the view of a coherent image falls apart into discontinuous or overlapping, often trapezoidal sections. The image disintegrates spatially similar to the way a (photographed) event dissolves in time. As the painted figures form and dissolve, they suggest memories emerging and fading.
The different viewpoints also suggest opposing perceptions of reality. There is the viewpoint that reflects a contained and intelligible universe, while the other viewpoints reflect discontinuous, fluctuating and ambiguous states.
