Our environment is saturated with imagery. Over time, the viewing public has lost the ability to connect emotionally with images, even the most horrific. By obscuring the parts of these images that define them as historically significant and re-drawing the gesture of what lays beneath, I have compromised the meaning of both the old and the new images. What is then created makes the new image visible as well as redefining what is seen in the old image, thus creating a different relationship than originally intended between the image and its viewer. In doing so, the viewer is forced to imagine and/or intuit what is erased, compelling them to examine these images in new ways that elicit emotional and thought provoking responses.
