I start by collecting everyday objects from the recent past — things made obsolete by technological changes and time; I then whitewash them with ordinary house paint as a method of erasure, and then draw directly onto their surfaces with charcoal to create visual hybrids that appear to vacillate between drawing and photography, black-and-white and color, signifier and signified, copy and original. No digital manipulation is involved, but the camera’s monocular point of view is imperative.
