Art Without Mystery

Do images have the potential to stimulate or to provide an enjoyable artistic experience when they refer directly to their own production and visual qualities?

Taking a constant and ubiquitous element of everyday surroundings, interior walls, and a straightforward and uniform approach to mark-making, the painting of walls, this project uses simple methods to look at basic creative gestures made in architectural space. Photographic material of interior walls being painted is taped to a wall and painted with similar techniques and tools. The photographic documents of these actions record the basic gestures of applying paint to walls as subject and process, both merging as the wall is increasingly disrupted by the gestures of painting over time.
