DESCRIPTION

Acrylic paint and sticker over photographic print | 2017

The series, Mental Object, takes inspiration from one of the artist's favorite books, On Photography by Susan Sontag. The book refers to photographs as “mental objects”, leading to the discussion of portraying truth and reality with the camera. Quaresma takes Sontag's critique as permission to abandon the assertion of objectivity and dive into the realm of imagination.

“I am creating an imaginary reality that invites the audience to make their truth by using images that are subjective. Breaking out of the confines of a fixed frame creates possibilities. The painted line welcomes these possibilities, as well as questioning photography’s rigid assertion of objectivity.”
