Erased Photographs: Amanda Clyne

Thursday, February 5, 2015

Amanda Clyne manipulates the process of print photography using impregnable paper and a brush to achieve these celestial copies of European masterpieces.

“Inspired by portraiture, couture and the history of painting, I look to images where artifice reigns, in the historical portraits… that feign perfection. In the studio, I provoke their metamorphosis through experimental processes and hybrid modes of image making to excavate their artifice. The resulting works are portraits of portraits that dismantle the spectacle of image-making, and reflect the fragile nature of seeing and being seen.”
