“In America, the photographer is not simply the person who records the past, but the one who invents it.” Susan Sontag.
Golems is an ongoing series where I enjoy inventing the source instead of interpreting form real photographs. Sometimes this actually involves trying to remember an old photograph. All presented on found wooden supports.
NOTE on process…My paintings on porcelain resemble photographs which I refer to as Phossils. (The process is long involving preparation of flat plates from fresh porcelain. Once dry, they are fired at approx. 900ºc. Using a mixture of powdered oxide and several other ingredients, I then paint directly onto the ‘biscuit’ porcelain. Once complete I then fire it a second time at approx. 1280ºc.)
