LustreBy removing the recognizable aspects of an image and replacing it with a sheet of white photographic paper, where its depth and space are infinite, achieves an overwhelming sense of oscillating scale. The spaces we photograph and flatten through the camera, reproduce as a photograph and keep within albums perceives the photograph as this pristine object. By gently bowing and bending, forming and shaping this image from an illusionary white to a sculpted object transformed its dimensionality. Through sculpting these voids and contours the irreversible marks that appeared upon the surface intrigued me as it depicted the potential for the image. The subtle indications often hidden within the vast spaces of white give the piece an ethereal quality.
