About the work
"For years, I’ve been laying leaves and pills onto photographic paper in order to capture the shadow of real things into photograms. This is the first time I’ve used a digital scanner to capture the prearranged image. The resulting image of the leaves are captured full scale and contain their original color and texture. I printed the image and then cut it up and painted it. This work extends my investigation of art as a perceptual modification activity while blurring the difference between the real, the photographic and the painterly". - Fred Tomaselli
