Residue of a Vision

At PDX Contemporary Art

show

Georgina Reskala:

"What we understand as real is a construction of what our eye sees and what it comprehends. Reality is  shaped by an ongoing construction of the merging of cultural experiences and our intake of visual information.

My work is a cumulative record of my perceptions and perspectives over time and space. I remove elements in order to point at the difference between what the eye sees and what it understands and each iteration has some truth and some fiction. It is a way to understand the meaning of seeing and perceiving. What happens in between is what interests me. That interstitial space which is the confirmation of the limits of our understanding.

My fascination with perception is both physiological and philosophical. When I photograph the ocean or the forest, I copy and re-copy over and over and stripped the photographs of color, texture, form, elements,etc. It is a way to break down ideas and concepts; every rendition acquires new layers, new meanings, and it opens up to new interpretations.The photographs at the end are repetitions, illustrations, memories of reality,  or just the residues of a vision."
