Provided photographs ranged in quality from high-resolution digital originals to low-resolution phone pics of printed originals. Process began as a personal project, but became a series of prints for 1350 Distilling's Taste Lounge decoration.
Every image, like every person has a story. Recreating a digital painting can allow for very precise reproduction, but I am inspired by memory. Memories of someone lost or gone is easily strengthened by a single photograph. It does not have to be precise. The remembrance of a song, a setting, words said or implied can all come rushing back to the viewer. I wanted to make use of new mobile app products to recreate a simulated painted experience, something that the viewer can feel emotion from even without knowing the story or stories behind the person or place.
