Negative Paintings

These installations used the ‘invert’ function of digital camcorders to process the images of three paintings executed in ‘negative’ colours and tones, in a live setting. When caught between the painting and the camera, the viewers can see themselves on screen in the ‘wrong’ colours, at the expense of the ‘corrected’ image of the landscape.

Installation: B.A. (Hons) Fine Art, Kingston Upon Thames, 1999
