The camera is a tool of appropriation and recontextualization. With each click of the shutter, photographers can dramatically alter how we perceive the subject. Our society has, mistakenly and dangerously, come to believe that photography is a medium of truth. Engaging with this conceptual space, I present a series of stains, chipped paint, graffiti cover-ups, and other textures as "found paintings." These photographs challenge the way we encounter the mundane; small details that are often overlooked can bear verisimilitude to abstract expressionist paintings, given the right context.
