I have two images in this online group show from Oranbeg Press.
Im very happy to be participating in this, as the idea or theme of the show pops up quite a bit in my work: photographing an absence.
A palimpsest is any sort of scroll or parchment in which the original text is erased, but still legible. Exceedingly important texts have been found only as the half erased markings beneath otherwise irrelevant writing. For the astute historian, it is wise to consider every document as a potentially holding realities it has overwritten. Stuck between documentary truth and fine-art fiction, artists today are highlighting this flimsy dichotomy and demonstrating that often, the most pressing realities are only seen when we look for whats erased.
