Alice Quaresma

Mental Object 9

Original Work on Paper

DESCRIPTION

Acrylic paint and color pencil over photographic print | 2018

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.
