Subject to Impression
We are on the brink of a 3D printing revolution, commercial uses such as printed figurines provide a representation of the sitter displayed as a photographic object. But what is the legacy of these objects? Will they ever be valued as highly as a photograph or painting? The work sets to create a dialogue between old and new. Breaking the generic and subjective tendencies of the mini statues by reintroducing elements of traditional portraiture, which are absent in this process. By appropriating famous works from the history of portraiture and then reverting them from 3D photographic object and then back to 2D print in order to create a tension and irony within the work.
