Feuilleton (Double Issue)
Appropriating the format of a TV guide printed on newsprint, Double Issue consists of portraits of iconic small screen personalities that have been manipulated by adding water to printed images. Combining digital and analog aesthetics, the resulting painterly images appear as bleeding rainbows that capture the performative gestures behind their own making. Featuring altered images of Goldie Hawn, Vicki Lawrence, Bill Cosby, Madeline Kahn, and other TV greats from the past, Double Issue is a hauntingly beautiful portrait of the ephemeral.
