more on Paper Chase

I left yesterday’s interview (with Jenny and Shawn) thinking about paper, montage and art history. Maybe I will be able to venture into it a little bit here during the course of the upcoming Paper Chase. In the meantime, here are a few images. Above is Heidi Kirkpatrick, who started out with the camera but has moved more and more into using her photographs as a starting point in mixed media.

Same with Shawn Long. She photographs the central image and then takes it from there. Below you see a Jenny Strayer, who has complete different bodies of work addressing different themes. In Paper Chase she is showing a classic approach to photomontage.

The Kirkpatrick piece is lovely. Lyrical and unpretentious. I prefer it over anything that dirty old Man Ray ever did.
