Picture frames


Does an image exist if it is taken by a camera that is a pictorial representation of a camera? The small paintings depict everyday scenes, objects and people. The meaning represented inside the frame cannot be immediately guessed giving it a subjective feeling. The observer is looking at an image captured by an imaginary camera of an iPhone. The symbol (“turn camera around”) on the painted surface suggests that these images could have been taken by someone using this camera or they could be capturing the self-portrait of the person holding the device. “The picture is not in front of us, but it is ahead of us.” These images can be representations of moments that could have never happened, but by giving them a physical body through paint, they become portraits of concealment.
