Transform begins with an interest in how art is created with makeup, and how the same face can take on many different personas based on which colors were applied where. Working with iridescent pigments, which have the same textures,-colors, and reflectivity of makeup, I am silkscreening images of faces which are in the state of “camp.”
Transform takes excerpts of Susan Sontag’s Notes On “Camp” which speak on the topics of the love of the character, exaggeration and all things artificial. The use of the iridescent pigments reflect Sontag’s text as the affects they create at certain angle become all surface/style and the content disappears. The book works as an accordion book as to slow down the reading process and create interaction between the text and the images.
