This series is based on a single, grainy snapshot taken with a 110 camera. Using a scan of the photo, I made numerous crops, each one blown up anywhere from 200% to 3000%. The printed crops became the source material for the paintings. Each transformation of the photo – through scanning, cropping, enlargement, and the act of painting – results in another layer of distortion. By using photographic source material, this work suggests preservation, while decay is implied in the process of degradation through enlargement.
