Carmel Louise - De_Constructed 2.0

18 Nov 2021 - 19 Dec 2021

Using the latest digital technologies, I experiment with my photographic images through methods that displace the visual content. I then deliberately disrupt the physical surface of the print. Pushing traditional boundaries and limitations of colour, form, and texture, the image and print’s surface is restructured by hand-cutting and layering. The image separated into parts of its compositional elements becomes a disrupted 3-dimensional illusory space, one that liberates its potential to transform the original photographic image into an abstract visual fantasy.                                                    
What was originally seen in the camera viewfinder becomes other by digital and analogue/ hand-crafted processes.  The deconstruction of the (often) banal content of the single photographic image is now transformed through digital manipulation and cutting, to separate and react against the limitations of conventional photography.
