Paris Positives, 2011
10 gouache on Rives BFK paper, 4 x 6 inches
Photographs of the paintings 16 x 24 inches on Kodak Metallic Endura Paper
A recently closed real estate office in Paris left boxes of old files on the curb. I could hear the garbage trucks coming down the street. I managed to old grab a few things, one of them was an envelope of medium format negatives. I brought them home and tired to bring them back to live by painting what I saw when holding them up to the light. The inverted photos of those paintings are seen here, a peak into a Paris that is no longer there and in some ways will always be there.
