DOUBTING THOMAS 2016
Doubting Thomas is intended to function as an exercise in looking. More specifically, it is an exercise in looking at flat photographs that revisit problems of figure/ground, surface/support relationships originally explored in modern painting. Formal problems of line, pattern, and texture within extremely shallow depth of wall designs are additionally complicated from their sharp photographic recording.
The works in Doubting Thomas are titled based on their GPS coordinates so that the pictorial skepticism they encourage can be erased by relocating these situations, and reproducing the images on Google Street View.
